May 2 - Conquest Offshore was contracted by Allseas Group to replace the pipelaying vessel Allseas Solitaire's 300-tonne capacity crane with a new 850-tonne capacity Huisman crane at the Dutch Offshore Base in Amsterdam.

Allseas Solitaire is the largest ship to have passed through IJmuiden's sea lock, according to Conquest Offshore. It is scheduled to return to service in the summer of 2016.

Conquest MB1 is now on its way to Mexico for a salvage job in the Gulf.
