MODU Q5000 Well Intervention Vessel Next Generation Intervention Semisub
The newbuild Q5000 was designed from the start to perform a wide variety of tasks, including subsea well intervention, field and well decommissioning, installation and recovery of subsea equipment, well testing and emergency well containment.
The Q5000 is outfitted with a multipurpose tower capable of fulfilling all traditional derrick roles, plus a deepwater crane with lifting capacity to 360mT and a work crane rated to 160 mT. The vessel’s leading edge design includes a 68 ft x 26 ft moonpool and 23 ft x 22 ft mechanized fully opening rig floor door, a 7- 3/8 inch intervention riser system, two 10,000 ft heavy-weather ROV systems and an overall deck load of 3,000 mT. The open deck space will allow for quick and efficient loading and offloading of project supplies and equipment in a single lift.
The Q5000 will arrive in the Gulf of Mexico in 2015.
