Brunvoll Delivering Thruster Systems to New Vessel

Brunvoll will deliver Tunnel Thrusters for a new 140 m long cable laying vessel. The vessel is of SALT 306 CLV design from Salt Ship Design in Stord, Norway.

Facts

Brunvoll AS has more than 100 years of experience in marine propulsion and is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of thruster systems.

ABB has ordered the world’s most advanced cable-laying vessel to boost the capacity of its submarine cable operations while achieving greater efficiency and precision. The new ship will be custom-built to ABB specifications and measure approximately 140 by 30 meters.

 

«This project is a great example of the strength of Norwegian ship design and ship building in tough international competition. Close cooperation between ABB, Salt Ship Design and Kleven has resulted in a vessel that is future-oriented, competitive and highly inovative,» said Ståle Rasmussen, Kleven’s CEO.

Large and important

«This is a large and very important contract for Kleven, in a time where shipbuilding contracts in general are few. Adding to our orderbook yet another contract for markets outside the traditional offshore segment is also of great importance» Mr Rasmussen said.

A number of local suppliers from the maritime cluster on the Norwegian north-west coast will contribute to the project. Among them are Brunvoll, Hareid Group and ABB Marine in Ulsteinvik. The vessel is to be delivered from Kleven Verft in 2017.
