The vessel is to be built at Kleven Maritime’s Kleven Verft in Ulsteinvik, Norway. The total value of the contract is around Nk2 1.1 billion. The contract also includes an option for a further vessel of the same type.

“We are delighted that Eidesvik has chosen to build this large, very advanced vessel at Kleven Verft,” said Ståle Rasmussen, CEO of Kleven Maritime. “We look forward to continuing our cooperation with Eidesvik, and to deliver this complex vessel which we are confident will provide a safe work place for the crew, and be a good investment for Eidesvik.”
