  • Newbuild – post-delivery finessing

In April 2018 Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam (DSR) welcomed Bravenes, a 14,000 DWT flexible fallpipe vessel for subsea rock installation newly delivered to Van Oord by Sinopacific Shipbuilding’s Ningbo yard in China. The vessel spent four weeks at the yard, undergoing final completion and commissioning prior to her being deployed for her first mission.

Scope of works

The main activity was preparing the fallpipe tower for final commissioning.

This involved the installation on board of two Hitachi excavators, supplied by Van Oord, as well as the fitting of other equipment required to make the fallpipe tower fully operational. While this was underway, a range of minor modifications were made and various tasks that were started in Ningbo were completed.

A unique vessel

The Bravenes is a unique piece of equipment within Van Oord’s fleet. The vessel, with a deadweight of 14,000 tonnes, a length of 154 metres, and a beam of 28 metres, is designed to install a wide range of rock sizes to protect pipelines, cables and other seabed structures. She can perform three different types of rock installation, using the fallpipe through the moon pool, a fallpipe over the side, or a tremie pipe over the side. This last option allows the vessel to install rock very close to offshore platforms, such as monopiles, aided by its DP3 system.

The vessel is outfitted for year-round operations in adverse weather and high-sea conditions. She has accommodation for up to 60 personnel, can spend up to 45 days continuously at sea and can sail at a maximum speed of 13 knots.
