Seaway 7 has announced that it has taken delivery of a new semisubmersible heavy transport vessel. The company entered into a bareboat contract with United Faith for its new build vessel MV Xin Qun 3, renamed Seaway Swan.
Seaway Swan is a 50,000 Te DWT Heavy Transport Vessel (HTV) with an open stern and large deck free from obstructions. This addition to Seaway 7’s HTV fleet will further extend the company’s capacity to load larger and longer cargoes such as XXL monopiles. The Seaway Swan is suitable for float-over operation projects, feeder duties alongside installation vessels, and offshore (subsea) construction support, due to its Dynamic Positioning (DP2) capabilities. The vessel has been built by Qingdao Beihai shipyard, part of the CSSC group.
