Rem returns to Kleven for another newbuildYard News // November 9, 2012
Kleven is to build a MT6022 vessel for Rem Offshore.
Kleven shipyard in Norway has signed a contract with shipowner Rem Offshore for the construction of an advanced multifunction subsea support and construction vessel. The contract value is around 600 million NKr.
"Kleven 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.
Kleven has so far delivered 14 vessels to Rem, and will also deliver a LNG powered vessel to Rem in January 2013.
"We ordered a construction vessel of the same type from Kleven in April this year, based on the positive experience we have had with Rem Forza, a similar vessel delivered from Kleven Verft in 2008," said Åge Remøy, owner of Rem Offshore.
"We believe the market for this type of vessels will be strong in the future."
The 108m long vessel will have a beam of 22m and will be among the largest offshore vessels the Kleven yard in Ulsteinvik has built. It will have accommodation for 100 persons.
The vessel is of MT6022 design from Marin Teknikk. Among its features will be a powerful offshore crane. Delivery is set for the first quarter of 2014.
Kleven has 14 vessels on order, at a total value of around 7 billion NKr.
