Olympic Shipping contract to Kleven Maritime

Olympic Shipping contracts a new ship at Kleven Maritime at a value of 380 million NOK.

With this contract, Kleven Maritime’s order reserve increases to 10 vessels at a combined value of 3.7 billion NOK.

The Olympic Shipping contract manifests Kleven Maritime’s position as the country’s largest Norwegian-owned shipbuilding group. This is the second contract to be announced in just 14 days.

The vessel is scheduled for delivery in November 2012 and will be the third in a series of three ships, the first two contracted in August 2010 and January 2011. The MT 6015 type vessels are designed by Marin Teknikk and are multi-purpose platform service vessels.

As CEO of Kleven Maritime Ståle Rasmussen has over the past few years relocated an increasing part of the construction to Norway, thus going against the trend.

”I am very pleased that Olympic Shipping chose to build yet another ship at Kleven Maritime. On this contract, we will collaborate extensively with local suppliers such as Hareid Elektriske Teknikk and Rolls-Royce Marine. Working with local top class suppliers is important to succeeding in moving an increasing part of the building process home to Norway,” says Ståle Rasmussen.

Including this contract, Stig Remøy and Olympic Shipping has contracted vessels at a value of 1.4 billion NOK at Kleven Maritime.

”The vessel will join one of Norway’s most modern fleets of offshore vessels, and represents a new generation of modern vessels, characterised by emphasis on security and environmental impact”, says Stig Remøy.

The vessels represent a new generation of reliable and environmentally friendly platform service vessels. Well suited for northern conditions with Ice Class ICE 1B the vessel will be equipped for oil recovery (OIL REC –NOFO), increasing its market appeal. It will have a dead weight of around 4 800 tonnes, length 93,8 meters, beam 20 meters and a deck space of 1 060 m2. Accommodating 60 crew members, the vessel will be constructed in accordance with the new SPS code with facilities which will make it very well suited to ROV and subsea construction work.
