Norway: Simek Shipyard Secures Orders for One MSV of MM85 Design

Møksters increases its focus on the subsea market by ordering a new build specially designed for ROV work, survey, diving and light construction work. In addition, the vessel will be able to provide services to windmill construction work. It is designed by Multi Maritime AS in Førde and is called MM85 MSV. The vessel will be build at Simek Shipyard in Flekkefjord.

The design is a further development of the two vessels Atlantis Dweller and Stril Explorer, which Møkster got delivered in 2010/2011. Atlantis Dweller has been sold to Fugro RUE, whilst the Stril Explorer is 100% owned by Møkster. The Stril Explorer was in May awarded a one year contract, including two annual options, with Hallin Marine.

The MM85 MSV has the following main parameters:

  • Length / 85,45m
  • Breadth / 18,00m
  • Accommodation / 90 persons, SPS code
  • Efficient logistics and facilities for management of subsea operations
  • DPII with diesel electric propulsion
  • Helideck
  • 60T active hiv compensated crane (2000m), 10T whip line (2000m) og 10T dykkekran til 100m.
  • Large WROV/diving hangar
  • Two decks (Shelter and main deck) – 1175m2 area
  • Shallow draft for “near” land operations
  • Focus on working environment for crew as engines are placed aft on ship to reduce noise
  • Good station keeping with two azimuths and one tunnel thruster in the bow section

Simek has previously delivered two PSV’s to Møkster on time with very high standards. The new build will be delivered in May 2014.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
