Kleven to modify Aker WayfarerYard News // October 29, 2014
Kleven’s Myklebust Verft in Gursken, Norway, has signed a contract for modification of Aker Wayfarer into a subsea equipment support vessel (SESV). The contract was placed by Ocean Yield.
The vessel is under long term charter with AKOFS Offshore. At Myklebust Verft, the vessel will be modified in order to enable it to install and retrieve subsea trees and modules, including subsea structures and manifolds.
At 157m long and with a breadth of 27m, Aker Wayfarer will be the largest vessel that has been in dock at Myklebust Verft.
Aker Wayfarer was designed by Vard Design, and delivered from Vard Søviknes in 2010. Rolls-Royce in Hjørungavåg will deliver the top-side equipment.
