Flying the flag of Danish International Register, the 14,100 gross-ton ship features a length of 137 meters and a width of 27 meters. The newbuilding currently has a market value of USD 92.64 million, according to data provided by VesselsValue.
“Maersk Supply Service’s new Stingray subsea support vessels are built to carry out a wide range of deep and shallow water operations in challenging offshore environments. The vessels have flexible features with a large free deck, a 400t crane and 120 … single-cabins,” Carsten Gran Haagensen, Chief Commercial Officer at Maersk Supply Service, explained.
“The vessels have been designed with energy efficiency as a key design parameter, keeping the fuel consumption at a very low level. The four Stingray new-buildings will be a crucial part of Maersk Supply Service’s future fleet allowing us to offer a broader scope of services,” Haagensen added.
