The shareholders of Antwerp-based heavy lift specialist Scaldis Salvage & Marine Contractors have ordered what they describe as "an extremely powerful, self-propelled DP2 crane ship" from Korean shipbuilders STX Offshore & Shipbuilding.

The vessel will be built at STX’s shipyard in Dalian and finished in Xiamen, both of which are located in the People’s Republic of China.

The contract with STX Offshore & Shipbuilding for the construction and delivery of the ship was signed on 29 February 2012. The design was drawn up in-house on the basis of the extensive experience that Scaldis has accumulated.

The keel of the vessel, which will have a lifting capacity of 4,000 tonnes, will be laid in February 2013. Delivery is scheduled for spring 2014.
