Kleven Maritime AS has yet again signed a contract with Parat Halvorsen AS, for their new building 361 to be constructed at Kleven Verft shipyard in Ulsteinvik. Part of the delivery will be one combined 1250kW electric steam & hot water boiler.
In normal vessel operation the boiler is part of the hot water and heat recovery loop and supplies necessary additional heat to the HVAC, Sanitary and tank heating systems on board. If an oil spill disaster should occur the boiler will be re-mobilized to run as a steam boiler. The steam is used to maintain viscosity in the recovered crude oil emulsion in the ORO storage tanks.
The vessel is designed by Salt Ship Design, type Salt 100 PSV. It will be delivered to owner Ugland Supplier AS in January 2014.
