Kleven has signed a contract with Olympic Shipping for the building of an IMR vessel of MT 6021 design. The contract value is around NOK 400 million (approx. USD 64.7 million), and the vessel will be delivered from Kleven Verft in March 2015.
“It is a great pleasure for us to be able to contribute to the expansion of the highly advanced Olympic fleet. Close cooperation with Olympic’s organisation during the building process ensures that the shipowners’ experience and knowledge is being transformed into new and better solutions,” said Ståle Rasmussen, CEO of Kleven.
The Marin Teknikk design is new and developed in cooperation with the ship owner Olympic, focusing on efficient and environmentally friendly solutions. The vessel is equipped with an offshore crane, ROV hangars, and with significant accommodation capacity.
Kleven now has 13 vessels in its orderbook, at a total value of around NOK 8 bn (approx. USD 1.2 billion).
