Klevin Maritime wins order from Olympic Shipping
Olympic Shipping AS has ordered a Multi Purpose Field Supply and Construction Vessel at Kleven Maritime in Norway, with an option for a second ship. Delivery dates are agreed for January and June 2012. The contract price is NOK 385 million (about US $62.5 million) for each ship.
The ships will be built to a new MT 6015 design from Norwegian design company Marin Teknikk AS.
The new generation, environmentally friendly offshore vessel design emphasizes fuel economy, low emissions and large capacities both above and below deck. Class notation Ice C provides for suitability in northern areas, and the vessels will be equipped for oil recovery operations (NOFO 2009).
Deadweight is 4,800 tons, length 93.8 meters, beam 20 meters, deck space 1,060 sq.m. The accommodation area has a capacity of 60 persons.
The MT 6015 is being built in accordance with the new SPS code, and will include facilities that will make it very well suited to ROV and subsea construction work.
The vessels are to be built at Kleven Verft in Ulsteinvik, Norway.
"These contracts are highly welcome for Kleven Verft and Kleven Maritime, contributing to our capacity being fully utilized the next two years" states CEO Ståle Rasmussen of Kleven Maritime.
"We are looking forward to cooperating with Kleven Verft and Kleven Maritime, and we are certain we have elected a design for the future as well as a yard with an efficient method of building," said owner Stig Remøy of Olympic Shipping.
