DEME’s LNG-powered offshore multipurpose vessel, the Living Stone is expected to be completed in June after it would head out to its first cable laying assignment at Hornsea Project One in the UK, according to the Belgian dredging specialist.

The vessel recently arrived in Vlissingen, the Netherlands from a shipyard in Spain’s port town of Santurtzi.

There, the ship would get the last outfittings before completion, a DEME spokeswoman told LNG World News in an emailed comment on Monday.

A dual-lane cable installation system, with a total capacity of 10,000 tonnes, will be installed on the Living Stone, the spokeswoman said.

To remind, the LNG-powered vessel sustained “minor” damage in February following a fire caused by hot works.

The vessel, to be deployed by DEME’s unit Tideway, was previously scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of 2017 by La Naval.

However, as the financially-troubled Spanish shipbuilder could not keep its contractual obligations, DEME moved the vessel in September 2017 from Bilbao to Santurtzi.

The Living Stone, that is expected to be able to accommodate a crew of up to 100 persons, is powered by Wärtsilä dual-fuel engines with LNG being the primary fuel.
