VIDEO: First of six Starfish vessels joins Maersk Supply’s fleet

Danish offshore vessel provider Maersk Supply Service has shared a video of the newest addition to the company’s fleet – the recently delivered Maersk Master anchor handler.

MSS said on Monday that the Maersk Master was delivered and named at Kleven Shipyards on March 24, 2017, on time and on budget.

The newbuild will be put to work on the Janice and Leadon decommissioning projects in the North Sea with Maersk Oil UK beginning in spring 2017.

The vessel is the first of six Starfish anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessels and its hull was launched at the Kleven shipyard in June of last year.

Initially, the 23,065 bhp AHTS was supposed to be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2016 but was later deferred for February 2017, only to arrive last Friday. According to Kleven Verft’s order list, the delivery of all five remaining Starfish vessels should happen during 2017.

The Maersk Master started its sea trials in February 2017. The AHTS has a bollard pull of more than 250 tonnes and towing drums designed for 500 tonnes of pull force. Specs claim that the vessel has a 4,600 tonnes of deadweight capacity, and a deck capacity of 2,500 tonnes.

The DP-2 vessel is 95 meters long, 25 meters wide and has an ROV garage for one ROV Launch and Recovery System (LARS) with a built-in ROV control room. It can accommodate 52 persons.
