    Kleven confirms De Beers contract

    Yard News // April 29, 2015

    De Beers Marine Namibia, part of De Beers Group, has lifted restrictions on publicity surrounding its  contract with Norwegian shipbuilder Kleven for the construction of a highly specialised vessel for deep water mineral exploration.

    The contract was initially announced in October 2014, but subject to final approval within May 2015.

    The first of its kind vessel will be of MT 6022 design from Marin Teknikk. The design is well proven within the offshore construction segment, but the new build for De Beers will include a wide range of tailor made equipment and features. 

    The vessel will be built at Kleven Verft in Ulsteinvik, Norway, and is to be delivered in June 2016.
