Royal IHC and the McDermott’s AMAZON project

Royal IHC is modifying McDermott’s pipelay and construction vessel AMAZON. It includes the delivery of an innovative and complete J-lay system.

IHC manages the whole modification of this project, from the design through to the integration of the new equipment. The physical modifications comprise the removal of the existing pipelay system and its replacement with a new J-lay system with a top dynamic capacity of 1,500 tonnes.

The J-lay system will be able to handle every variety of pipe including normal flowlines, export lines, and various pipe-in-pipe configurations, ranging in size from 4.5 to 24 inches with wall thicknesses approaching 2 inches.
