Modular Capture Vessels

Modular Capture Vessels

We strive to deliver innovative and bespoke solutions for our customers. In June 2011, we were awarded a 20-year contract to supply two modular capture vessels (MCVs) to the Marine Well Containment Company (MWCC) – a consortium of the world’s leading oil companies created to mitigate risks relating to drilling and extraction activities in the US Gulf.

MCVs are unique, first-in-class Aframax vessels that combine FPSO and DP technology in a single hull. Built by Tsuneishi in Japan and converted by Drydocks World in Dubai, these vessels are today part of an innovative marine system solution designed to respond to subsea incidents such as a well control incident.

On station in the US Gulf, our two specialist vessels trade as standard Aframax tankers until mobilised for carbon capture duties should the need arise.
