Seven Waves docked at extended Shetland quay

Offshore staff

LERWICK, UKSubsea 7’s 146-m (479-ft) long construction vessel Seven Waves has berthed at Lerwick Harbour’s deepwater Dales Voe Base on Shetland, ahead of a contract offshore eastern Canada.

The quay has undergone a phased £11.95-million ($15.77-million), 75-m (246-ft) extension to 130 m (426 ft). Last week, the coaster Eendracht was the first vessel to take advantage, arriving to deliver equipment for transfer to the Seven Waves.

Complementary works at the base, including reclamation, a laydown yard and demolition of a redundant building, will continue into the fall.

The Shetland port is a long-established support center for the offshore industry in the northern North Sea and in the Atlantic to the west, including subsea development and decommissioning projects.
