Bjørkmann, Vice President for Subsea 7 in Norway.Stuart Fitzgerald, Executive Vice President Strategy and Commercial Subsea 7 said: “The vessel marks an important investment for the future. When delivered in early 2020, Seven Vega will be one of the most capable and cost-effective reel-lay vessels in the market and a global enabler for Subsea 7. It has been designed to deliver flowline technologies that address the growing market trend towards longer and more complex tie-back developments.“The vessel’s cutting-edge pipelay system focuses on crew safety, operational efficiency and flexibility. This system will be capable of installing complex rigid flowlines including pipe-in-pipe systems and electrically heat traced flowlines in water depths up to 3000m.”Dave Vander Heyde, CEO Royal IHC: “Our partnership with Subsea 7 has again proven to be successful and we are pleased to add more value to their advanced fleet. The integrated approach of IHC to vessel design, will give Subsea 7 an industry leading asset that sets a new standard in offshore pipelay.”IHC designed Seven Vega in close cooperation with Subsea 7. The vessel will be capable of installing complex rigid flowlines including pipe-in-pipe systems.Royal IHC said that the vessel’s compact dimensions are a result of the creative positioning of its three engine rooms and main reel, efficient use of the superstructure, and low air draft pipelay tower. The smart use of space opens up a large aft working deck, while the optimized mass distribution minimizes the ballast water requirement, IHC added.Seven Vega has an overall length of 149m, a breadth of 33m and a Class 3 dynamic positioning system. Its reel-lay system has a 600t top tension capacity consisting of a 32m main reel and a 17m auxiliary reel with a maximum storage capacity of 5,600t and 1,600t respectively. It is fitted with cranes offering a lifting capacity of 250t and 50t, and mutiple smaller cranes alongside two side-launching work-class ROV systems.This reel-lay vessel is the ninth vessel IHC will deliver to Subsea 7. The delivery represents a fully integrated pipelay vessel equipped with a pipelay system designed, engineered and built by IHC.Spotted a typo? Have something more to add to the story?

Why They Leave

first_imgThere has been a lot of talk recently on the mass exodus of Indiana basketball talent from the state’s high schools to out-of-state colleges. I have been quite vocal on this exodus. It really grips me that Purdue and IU get most of their star players from states other than Indiana. IU did have a few good Indiana players as well as Purdue, but either could have won a national championship if all those players who played for Duke, Michigan, and Ohio State had stayed home. I think most of it is image. IU is starting to get its image back, but still lacks the “I need to go there to be seen”. Purdue had it a few years ago, but lately it seems to be “I would go anywhere but there”. This is really a shame because Purdue’s track record in education takes a back seat to no one, and the IU business school is rated as high as any place else in the USA. I know one problem Purdue has is that the athletes are not only expected, but are demanded, to be in class. Not all schools do this. If some stories are true, a national championship team had several players who attended no classes the second semester of that season. This is obviously not right. One way to improve the situation is to win consistently again. Just check with IU when Coach Crean came on the scene. Players, I can guarantee you that the national press will find you if you can play like Thomas did last season at Ohio State. Have a little pride in your state and stay at home. I think more of Bryant McIntosh of Greensburg each time I consider his desire to go to Indiana State.last_img read more

Pregnancy-related care bill authored by Leising clears committee

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — A bill authored by Republican state senator from Oldenburg, Jean Leising that would allow minors to receive pregnancy-related care today passed the Senate Committee on Health and Provider Services by a bipartisan vote of 10-1.Senate Bill 352 would allow minors who are at least 16 years old to consent to healthcare if they are pregnant, in labor or postpartum.“Many young women are coming into hospitals across our state to deliver a child, but they are unable to receive basic care unless the situation becomes serious because their parents or guardian are not present,” Leising said. “Not all pregnant minors have parental support. For the safety of the mother and baby, we need to make sure these women are able to consent to necessary care, as Indiana already has high maternal and infant mortality rates.”According to America’s Health Rankings by the United Health Foundation, Indiana’s maternal mortality rate was twice the national average in 2018. The report also found that 7.4 infant deaths occurred per 1,000 live births in 2018 compared to 5.9 infant deaths per 1,000 live births nationwide.SB 352 will now move to the full Senate for consideration.last_img read more
