Unknown ship

Nobody knows who where and when the first ship in Sunderland was built. When researching for this project the first thing I thought of was trying to find the first ship built in Sunderland, this was impossible to find out so I have painted this ship as an example of one that may have been built around the time.

In 1998 the Seawell completed the world's first ever wireline intervention on a horizontal subsea tree on Amoco Exploration's Arkwright Field in the North Sea. Currently owned by Helix Energy Solutions Group and operated by the company’s well intervention business unit, Helix Well Ops, the Seawell has entered more than 650 wells, decommissioned more than 150 live and suspended wells and 15 subsea fields.
