Nowegian shipbuilder Kleven has delivered the fifth vessel in a series of six anchor handlers for Maersk Supply Service A/S.
Built for deepwater operations, Mærsk Mobiliser of the so-called Starfish series is equipped with a range of innovative features, the builder said. The vessel is of Salt 200 design and has an open deck space of more than 800m2, with an additional covered deck space of 102m2. It is equipped with a 450-metric-ton anchor handling winch housed in an enclosed garage to protect the crew and the equipment in harsh conditions. Mærsk Mobiliser has Ice 1A classification and is prepared for oil recovery. The bollard pull of the vessel is measured to 260 metric tons.
Mærsk Mobiliser was christened during a naming ceremony at Kleven yard today with Trine Munch Agerskov as sponsor. The vessel will leave Kleven this week to mobilize for a future engagement with a major Canadian operator for drilling support and ice management duties.
The series' final vessel is scheduled to be delivered from Kleven in the end of January 2019.
