General overview

The Saipem Group possesses a strong, technologically advanced and highly-versatile fleet and world class engineering and project management expertise.
These unique capabilities and competences, together with a long-standing presence in strategic frontier markets represent an industrial model that is particularly well suited to EPICi (Engineering, Procurement, Installation and Construction) projects.
The Group boasts a fleet of semi-submersible vessels equipped with state-of-the-art technologies, including the Saipem 7000, equipped with a dynamic positioning system, 14,000-tonne lifting capacity and capability to lay subsea pipelines in ultra-deep waters using the ‘J-lay’ system, which can handle a suspended load of up to 1,450 tonnes during pipelay operations. Other vessels include the Castoro Sei, capable of laying large diameter subsea pipelines, the Field Development Ship (FDS), a special purpose vessel used in the development of deep-water fields, equipped with a dynamic positioning system, a 600-tonne lifting capacity crane and a vertical pipelaying system capable of operating in water depths of up to 2,000 metres, and the Saipem 3000, capable of laying flexible pipelines and installing umbilicals and mooring systems in deep waters and installing subsea structures of up to 2,200 tonnes.
Saipem also enjoys a strong position in the subsea market, thanks to its use of highly sophisticated technologies, such as subsea ROVs (Remotely Operated Vehicles) and specially-equipped robots capable of carrying out complex deep-water pipeline operations.
Finally, Saipem is also active in the Leased FPSOi sector, with a fleet comprising the Cidade de Vitoria and the Gimboa, as well as the FPSO Aquila, which is currently under construction.
