ACERGY EAGLE

  • The project entailed a major (5-year) refit to the “Acergy Eagle”, a 138m Subsea 7 Cable Restorer that had been converted into a Pipe Carrier with Moon Pool, Heavy Lift Crane and specialised Deep Diving Bell, Spudding and Anchor Tendon placement.
  • It was decided to undertake repairs to the Main Engines, Propulsion and Thrusters as well as embarkation of new Sonar Equipment, Pipe Spools and Piping for continued link-up work in Angola.
  • The “Acergy Eagle” was under a strict time-line to complete the refit work and return to Angola to complete the tie-ins.
  • The stern gear overhang was removed to allow the vessel to dock in the Ports Inner dock for and extended docking period.
  • The vessel was completely re-painted and new sacrificial anodes fitted throughout. After undocking and main engine trials, the Helideck and other load-bearing structures were load tested afloat and certified by the Surveyors.
  • The Main Engines, CPP Propellers and three bow thrusters were completely stripped and overhauled.
  • Electrical Systems were stress tested and old wiring looms replaced.
  • The Moon Pool and ROV handling equipment were overhauled and all cranes and lifting gear serviced to bring the vessel back into class. 
  • A new MOB Emergency Boat Deck and crane were installed and certified.
  • The vessel was returned into service on 15 January 2008 and EBH repatriated all removed equipment and pipe spools per the Owners instruction.
