Offshore construction vessel in dock
The imposing bulk of the construction vessel Seabed Constructor loomed into view on Thursday morning as it entered Bermuda's waters for the second time this year.
The multi-purpose offshore construction vessel, complete with helicopter landing deck, berthed in Hamilton so the crew could enjoy a day's shore leave after a trip from the Azores.
The Seabed Constructor, which visited St George's in February, is one of a fleet of subsea vessels owned by Norwegian firm Swire Seabed that carry out work across the globe.
The ship is equipped with state-of-the-art remote control mini-submarines designed for deep sea projects as well as a team of highly trained engineers and surveyors.
The vessel was designed to perform a wide range of light construction and survey work in the oil, gas and renewables sectors.
The Seabed Constructor is expected to leave Bermuda on Friday afternoon.
