Kleven Maritime has signed a contract with Rem Offshore for an advanced multifunction subsea support/construction vessel. The contract value is around NKr 550 million.
"Kleven Maritime and Rem have had a strong relationship for many years, and we are very pleased that they choose Kleven again," said Ståle Rasmussen, CEO at Kleven Maritime.
Kleven has so far delivered 12 vessels to Rem, and will also deliver a LNG powered vessel to Rem in December this year.
"We believe the market for this type of vessels will be strong in the future," said Åge Remøy at Rem Offshore. "We took delivery of a vessel of the same type from Kleven yard in August 2008, and our experience with this vessel, Rem Forza, has been very positive."
The vessel is of MT6022 design from Marin Teknikk. Among its features will be a powerful offshore crane able to lift 250 tonnes at 650m or 135 tonnes at 3,000m water depth.
The delivery date is set for June 2013.
