Kleven signs shipbuilding contract with IES Pioneer

Kleven has signed a new shipbuilding contract with Malaysian based Joint Venture Company IES Pioneer Ltd.

The contract for the new vessel is of the MT 6015 MPSV design, designed by Norwegian design company MarinTeknikk, and will be outfitted with a crane, helideck and FiFi II. Delivery will be in September 2015.

“At Kleven we are very pleased to announce our very first vessel construction contract with a client from South East Asia, showing that we are competitive worldwide based on our quality, punctuality and price,” Kleven CEO Ståle Rasmussen comments.

The high end specification vessel has a length of 93,8 meters, a beam of 20,0 meters, a working deck of more than 1,000 sq. meters, and will feature a 150 MT active heave compensated offshore crane, accommodation for 60 persons, CAP 437 compliant helideck , fire-fighting capabilities as well as provisions for ROV operations.

The vessel is expected to be contracted by oil & gas operating companies in the ongoing development of deep and newly discovered ultra deep-water hydrocarbon fields of Asia and the Middle East. The multipurpose and highly versatile vessel has a proven design and track record in the harsh North Sea environment. On delivery the vessel is expected to ensure deep and ultra deep-water projects completed on schedule and with reduced weather downtime resulting in significant savings to oil majors and their contractors.

The signed contract by the above parties also includes an option for a second vessel to be constructed and delivered in 2016.
