Helix Producer I
The Gulf of Mexico’s first dynamically-positioned floating production vessel, Helix Producer I, was built by Helix Energy Solution Group in Ingleside, Texas. The vessel’s uniqueness is that it can be moved in the case of a hurricane. Summit provided electrical materials under strict criteria that all products have meet international certifications so that it could operate in every body of water around the world. Those included American Bureau of Shipping, Det Norske Veritas, Lloyd's Register of Shipping and U.S. Coast Guard standards.
