The Khankendi subsea construction vessel has completed its first project installation activity offshore Azerbaijan

Ingeteam is proud to have participated in the construction of the Subsea Construction Vessel KHANKENDI. The vessel was specifically designed and built by Azerbaijan’s Baku Shipyard to install the biggest subsea production system in the Caspian Sea as part of the BP-operated Shah Deniz Stage 2 project.

The SCV Subsea Construction Vessel, with 155 meters in length, will be carrying out underwater installation works between 2017 and 2027.
It incorporates a DP3 dynamic positioning system which will allow it to operate under waves of up to 2,5 m. It is also equipped with a 750 Ton crane, to carry out operations underwater up to a depth of 600 m. a diving system that allow for the operation of 18 divers and two ROV (Remote Operated Vehicles).

This is a very sophisticated vessel since it uses a Dp3 positioning system. From an electric standpoint thus us a vessel with high technological content, since it incorporates electric propulsion system.

The electrical generation is carried out by 6 alternators of 4.200 kW and 2 of 3.350 kW, generating a voltage of 6.6kV.

The 6.6kV main distribution panel will be in charge of distributing voltage to all consumers.

The fully redundant Automation Integrated System (INGESHIP IAS) will carry out the control and monitoring of the vessel´s electric systems, controlling up to 10.000 signals.

The INGESHIP PMS (Power Management System), will be charge of managing the power generation and will be integrated in the vessel´s automation system.

The Automation System will be equipped with a remote access (INGESHIP RAS) for control and maintenance of the equipment via Internet.

Ingeteam has supplied the complete main electrical power package, engineering, automation, commissioning and sea trials of the Subsea Construction Vessel “KHANKENDI”.
