Singapore’s Keppel Singmarine, a shipbuilding arm of Keppel Offshore & Marine, has delivered a multi-purpose ice-class vessel to New Orient Marine, a subsidiary of Luxembourg-based Maritime Construction Services.

Named MPV Everest, the vessel can operate in ambient temperature as low as minus 30 degree Celsius. It will have an Ice Class Arc 5 notation and capabilities such as Class 3 dynamic positioning and navigating in ice of up to one meter thickness.

“MPV Everest’s versatility allows it to carry out subsea repair and construction activities at 3,000 meters of water depth, well intervention, diving support services with an 18-men twin-bell system, fire-fighting and emergency rescue operations, as well as towing and the provision of supplies in Arctic terrain,” the shipbuilder explained.

The 7,300 dwt ship features a length of 141.8 meters and a width of 30 meters. Flying the flag of the Bahamas, the vessel is currently worth USD 46.17 million, VesselsValue’s data shows.

MPV Everest represents the eleventh ice-class specialized shipbuilding project completed by Keppel O&M, the company said.
