Croonwolter&dros and Bakker Sliedrecht engineered, fabricated, installed, and commissioned the complete electrical installation of the reel laying vessel that Royal IHC built for Subsea 7. The technologically advanced ship is intended for the installation of complex rigid flowlines, including pipe-in-pipe and electrical trace heating systems. This cost-effective technology will address the market trends towards longer tie-back developments. Bakker Sliedrecht and Croonwolter&dros will integrate all electrical installations of the most technologically advanced vessel to date.
The integrated reel lay vessel will be the ninth vessel for Subsea 7 that will be fitted with an electrical installation of Croonwolter&dros and Bakker Sliedrecht. These nine vessels were also designed and built by Royal IHC. Croonwolter&dros will focus on the low voltage installations, Bakker Sliedrecht will focus on the high voltage installations and drive systems.
