Italian-based engineering company Saipem says that the death which occurred on Friday on board the Saipem FDS ship, currently located in the port district of Waalhaven in Rotterdam, happened due to natural causes, as confirmed by the investigations of the Dutch authorities.

The colleague, who had no symptoms attributable to COVID-19, died unexpectedly during the night.

The company expresses its condolences and sincerest sympathy with the family.

Saipem said it had already taken steps to apply the strictest protocols to verify the existence of COVID-19 cases on board the vehicle itself.

Only one crew member was disembarked and transferred to isolation after he was confirmed positive, the company said.

In Guyana, Saipem has been awarded subsea contracts for the first two phases of the Liza development in the offshore deepwater Stabroek Block. The company had announced in November 2019 that it was awarded a contract for the proposed Payara development project also located at the Stabroek Block.
