Deep-water Support Vessel Market Estimated To Experience A Hike In Growth By 202

Posted by Fred Williams on January 20th, 2022

  • Deep-water support vessels are required for cleaning activities in the sea and shores, while diving into the sea for oil & gas exploration, and for offshore drilling inside deep and ultra-deep water surfaces. The vessels used sometimes in ultra-deep-water need to be technologically upgraded according to the harsh environment conditions. Toward this end, new technology such as Dynamic Positioning (DP) systems for marine vessels have been introduced. Deep-water support vessels carry a limited quantity of hazardous substances, because of the risk and possibility of toxic liquid leaking from the vessel. A typical support vessel is a platform supply vessel in a ship, specially designed to supply offshore substances, having a length of 50-100 meters. The main function of the vessel is to help transport goods, tools, equipment, and personnel from one offshore oil platform to another offshore structure. Another commonly used vessel is anchor handling tug supply vessel.

 Extensive utilization of deep-water support vessels in the oil & gas industry in deep drilling activities for crude oil, and transportation of petroleum to big barrels for use in electricity generation, asphalt and road oil, etc., has created huge demand for these vessels. Shipping of heavy equipment which are semi-submersible and are required to be lifted from underneath the water entail the use of deep-water support vessels to reach the remotest locations. Water drilling activities such as exploration of minerals from water, and creating renewable forms of energy (geothermal energy) necessitates deep-sea exploration, wherein water support vessels perform deep boring activities. Divers are required to carry out inspections or survey jobs, installations and configurations of sub-sea equipment, and monitoring the operations, for which they go deep inside the sea. A deep-water support vessel carries out such activities. These factors have increased the demand for deep-water support vessels.
