    Rem Fortune delivered by Kleven

    Vessel & ROV News // May 31, 2013

    Rem Fortune is one of a number of vessels built by Kleven for Rem.

    Kleven shipyard in Norway and Rem Offshore have consolidated their already strong relationship with the completion, christening and handover of the PSV Rem Fortune. The ship was named at Kleven’s Ulsteinvik shipyard on 15 May and is due to enter a long-term contract with ConocoPhillips.

    Kleven and Rem Offshore have a working relationship stretching back to January 2006, when the shipbuilder produced its first vessel, also named Rem Fortune, for the offshore shipping specialist. Since then Kleven has delivered a total of 14 vessels for the business.

    “We are delighted to have expanded our fleet with yet another Kleven-built vessel,” remarks Åge Remøy, Rem Offshore CEO. “This is a design we are already familiar with and it has been well-received in the marketplace. Last year we received two other vessels of this type from Kleven - Rem Fortress and Rem Commander – and they have proven to be reliable and effective vessels for both us and our customers.”

    Rem Fortune is a type VS 485 MK III PSV, a design that has been developed further since the delivery of Rem Fortress and Rem Commander. New refinements include optimised lines, which help reduce fuel consumption.

    In addition to Rem Fortune, there are a further three ships in the orderbook due to be delivered to Rem Offshore, in June this year and in February and May 2014. The first to be handed over will have a new Conning Information Display System from Kleven Maritime Technology (KMT).

    “The Conning Information Display System is a new development from KMT and has been provided as a free-standing Kleven product,” says Trond Liavaag, Managing Director of KMT.

    “The system displays the ship's vital data, including progress and movement patterns, and is based on a completely new graphic platform that has been designed with a focus on creating a user-friendly and intuitive graphic interface. Some features of note include, for example, the display of rotational movements such as propeller and wind direction against historical movement patterns.”

    Rem Fortune has light Ice Class and meets DNV requirements for Clean Design. The 85m long vessel has a maximum speed of over 15 knots, a deck area of 1,000m2 and accommodation for 22 people. Rem Fortune also boasts Comfort Class 3 notation.
