Global Offshore Services takes delivery of MakaluVessel & ROV News // September 6, 2013
Indian shipping company Global Offshore Services accepted delivery of Makalu, its seventh newbuild vessel from the Havyard Group, on August 23, 2013.
Continuing Globalís policy of naming vessels after prominent mountains, Makalu was named after a major mountain in the Himalayas.
As broker Seabrokers reported, built to the Havyard 832 design, the vessel was initially designed to be a sister vessel to Ben Nevis, which Havyard delivered to Global in February 2013.
However, during the construction process, the decision was made to change Makaluís classifications to prepare her for oil recovery and rescue/standby operations. Her maiden charter will see her work for Shell in West Africa.
