Ships for Global Undersea Network


Project Ozone Ltd. has selected Hyundai Mipo Dockyard Co., Ltd. to supply ships for the installation and maintenance of Project OXYGEN™ Network, the global undersea cable Network. A contract calling for the initial construction of 13 ships, with options for 10 more, was signed on 9 March 1999.
The ships will be used for the installation of the undersea cable making up the OXYGEN Network, as well as its maintenance under the Project OZONE maintenance agreement. Delivery of the ships is to begin in June 2000. The ships will be 126.5 meters in length with deadweight of approximately 8,000 tons. Their service speed is expected to be 14.5 knots fully loaded, ensuring their timely response to the global maintenance requirements of the OXYGEN Network.
The ships will have unique dynamic positioning capabilities that will allow them to maintain position in heavy seas and to follow a pre-described course as needed when laying undersea cable. They will use state-of-the-art local-area networks (LANs) connecting computers containing such information as cable repair and ship operation data, the first time on-board LANs have been connected to ship propulsion systems. Each ship will also have a real-time video feed, which will allow OXYGEN Network owners to observe repair operations via the Internet.
Since its establishment in 1975, Hyundai Mipo Dockyard has specialized in the new building and conversion of special-purpose ships like cable layers, drill ships, pipe layers, FPSO (floating production storage and offloading) units, asphalt carriers, pitch carriers, and other medium sized cargo ships at its shipyard in Ulsan, Korea. Its experienced engineers, skilled labors and modernized facilities with flexible operation of four graving docks ensure its worldwide clients of high quality ships in competitive time.
