Finland's Wärtsilä will design Subsea 7's new large heavy construction vessel (HCV). The firm was awarded the contract by South Korea's Hyundai Heavy Industries.

Wärtsilä will use its VS 4285 HCV design for Subsea 7's newbuild, which the company says is capable of operating in deep, ultra-deep waters and in harsher environments. The newbuild comes equipped with a 600-tonne offshore craine by Huisman. It will measure 160m long with a breadth of 32m and a depth of 13.5m. The deck area measures approxmately 2600m.

Riku-Pekka Hagg, vice president for Wärtsilä Ship Design said the contract follows one that the company received last year to design a dive support vessel (DSV) for Subsea 7, also being built by HHI. The newbuild DSV will be stationed in the North Sea for year round operations, and it's scheduled to be delivered in 2015.
