The massive visitor just offshore has attracted the attention of the P&J.
'The Saipem 7000 is owned by the oil and gas industry contractor Saipem which has offices in Aberdeen. It is understood the massive lifter and pipelayer could be moored up off Nairn while between jobs, but Saipem in Aberdeen did not know yesterday.'
Maybe the Saipem is going to be spending a bit longer here. If the vessel is looking for work perhaps some of the 800 beds on board could be made available to holiday makers if the tripadvisor.com prediction of Nairn being very popular this year come true.
Finished in 1987, the Vessel cost an estimated $400,000,000 and one would imagine that it is an asset that no company would want to be idle for too long a time.
