    Aries Offshore Services has ordered a VS 470 Mk II PSV.

    Myklebust Verft AS in Gursken, Norway, part of Kleven Maritime, has signed a contract with Aries Offshore Services in Ålesund, Norway, for construction of a VS 470 Mk II PSV.

    Delivery of the new vessel is due to take place in September 2008.

    Myklebust Verft AS has now 10 vessels on order. Kleven Maritime as a group has 30 vessels in order, valued at NKr 9.7 billion.
