Ship history

2008: US offshore major Global Industries (later: Technip) decided to build another combination Derrick/pipelay Vessel designed by Ulstein. The vessel named ‘Global 1201’ would be an evolution of the ‘Global 1200’, constructed at Keppel Singmarine.

The dynamically-positioned ‘Global 1201’ is a combination derrick/pipelay vessel with 1,200 tonne lifting capacity, pipe laying capacity up to 3,000 metres water depth and 60–inch concrete coated pipe. The main crane will also feature deep water lowering capabilities. With a transit speed of up to 15 knots the vessel will be able to mobilise swiftly around the world.

Like its sister ship Global 1200, the Global 1201 is a customised version of the SOC 600 design. The design incorporates an NOV AmClyde post crane on the aft and a centre firing line on the freeboard deck below the main deck, the latter being a distinctive feature of most Ulstein Design & Solutions BV's pipelay vessel designs.

Features and capabilities: Pipelay systems, Abandon and recovery system, Stinger, Helideck, Dynamic positioning.

2020: New owner is PT Timas Samudera Indonesia, and ship name changed to Timas 1201. Indonesian flag.
