Kleven has signed a contract with Olympic Shipping for the construction of an IMR vessel of MT 6021 design.

The contract value is around $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 design by Marin Teknikk AS is new and developed in cooperation with Olympic, with high focus on efficient and environmentally friendly solutions. The vessel is equipped with Offshore Crane, ROV hangars, and high accommodation capacity.
