The JSD 6000 is a customised ULSTEIN SOC5000 design. The design features an NOV revolving main crane with a 5,000 mt lifting capacity. What makes this vessel truly unique is the combination of a 600 mt Remacut S-lay system via a centre-firing line below the main deck, and a 2,000 mt IHC EB J-lay system via a moonpool. This double-deck configuration, a distinctive feature in Ulstein Design & Solutions BV's designs, allows for a large, unobstructed deck area and below-deck pipe fabrication.
