Norway: Kleven Maritime Secures Subsea Support Vessel Contract

Norway - Kleven Maritime Secures Subsea Support Vessel Contract

Kleven Maritime has signed a contract with ship owner Rem Offshore for the building of an advanced multifunctional subsea support and construction vessel. The contract value is around 550 million NOK.

‘Kleven Maritime and Rem have had a strong relationship for many years, and we are very pleased that they choose Kleven again,’ said Ståle Rasmussen, CEO at Kleven Maritime. Kleven has so far delivered 12 vessels to Rem, and will also deliver a LNG powered vessel to Rem in December this year.

‘We believe the market for this type of vessels will be strong in the future,’ said ship owner Åge Remøy in Rem Offshore. ‘We took delivery of a vessel of the same type from Kleven yard in August 2008, and our experience with this vessel, ‘Rem Forza’, is very positive.’

‘The 108 metres long and 22 metres wide vessel will be among the largest offshore vessels the Kleven yard in Ulsteinvik have built, and it will have accommodation for 110 persons. We will do our utmost to make this a safe workplace for all of them,’ said Ståle Rasmussen.

The vessel is of MT6022 design from Marin Teknikk. Among its features will be a powerful offshore crane able to lift 250 tonnes at 650 metres or 135 tonnes at 3000 metres water depth.

Delivery date is set to June 2013.
