Kleven in Norway has signed a contract with Ålesund-based shipowner Volstad Maritime for the delivery of two offshore construction vessels (OCV). The vessels will be delivered from Kleven’s Myklebust Verft in December 2014 and the second quarter of 2015.
Volstad originally placed the orders with Bergen Group Fosen, but the projects have now been sold to Kleven. The vessels are of ST 259 CD design from Skipsteknisk, and sister vessels to Grand Canyon, which was delivered from Bergen Group to Volstad in 2012.
The 127m long vessels will each have accommodation for 104 persons.
