Skandi Africa is the latest addition to the fleet of DOF Subsea, the leading supplier of services to the Oil & Gas sector. Skandi Africa is a DP3 construction support vessel designed for difficult settings, used for underwater construction and flexlay operations up to a depth of 3,000 m. A charter contract has been signed for it for the next 5 years with Techship.
With a length of 160.9 m, a width of 32 m, and a 2,700 sq. m. cargo deck, Skandi Africa is one of the most sophisticated vessels ever built for offshore works.
It is fitted with a 900 tonne working load Pedestal Mounted Crane and a combined active and passive stabilisation system to reduce wave motion.
This high-tech crane was built by the Dutch company, Huisman, and is fitted with a special Redaelli Flexpack 135 mm Ø, 4,725 m long steel cable for its main lifting gear. Our company provided tailor made solutions for both the initial supply and guaranteed the supply of a replacement cable.
A successful synergy: the Flexpack's high performance made it the only solution able to deal with this crane's extreme working conditions.
