Havyard Group held a launching ceremony for the 857 IMR design vessel ‘African Inspiration’ at Cemre shipyard in Turkey.
The launching is a result of the last year’s NOK 600 million (approxim. USD 100 million) worth agreement with the Nigerian oil and gas company Marine Platforms Ltd. ‘African Inspiration’ is the second 857 IMR design vessel to join Marine Platforms’ fleet.
The 113-metre long multipurpose service vessel is going to sail under the Nigerian flag into the country’s waters in September.
It has a gross tonnage of 5000t and its main crane is 3000-metre long.
