Port of Sunderland welcomes 16,500 tonne Skandi Acergy
ONE of the world’s largest oil and gas subsea engineering vessels made a fleeting visit to a North-East port as part of its global operations.
The 16,500 tonne Skandi Acergy, which works on deep water subsea projects in depths up to 3,000 metres, docked at the Port of Sunderland to allow for a change of crew.
Operated by engineering and construction firm, Subsea 7, the 157 metre long vessel berthed at the port's Corporation Quay after sailing from an offshore installation.
Matthew Hunt, Port of Sunderland port director, said: “The Skandi Acergy was an extraordinary sight on the Wear waters.
“We have believed for a long time in the port's ability and what it can offer, and this visit shows the scale in which we can operate.”+
