My last inclusion of a ship in a slightly larger format was so successful that I have decided to devote the rest of the month to flexible pipelay vessels, most of them operating in Brazilian waters. So here is the Top Coral Do Atlantico loading flexible pipe in Vitoria towards the end of last month. It is apparently owned by Odebrecht Oil and Gas and chartered by TechnipFMC. It entered service in 2014. It is 145 metres long and has cabins for 120 people, mainly in two berth cabins.
