In a lower-for-longer world of oil prices and reduced deepwater exploration, McDermott is positioning itself for the global energy recovery with the company’s new flagship, DLV 2000.
The DLV 2000 will add high-end capabilities and versatility to McDermott’s global fleet by utilizing a single vessel on projects requiring a combination of pipelay, heavy lift and deck space for structures and offshore workforce accommodation that would normally be executed by multiple vessels. Expectations are high for the DLV 2000 as a key asset for field development in remote locations through its combination of versatile construction capabilities and fast transit speed.
