Kleven takes over construction of Volstad’s OCVs

Kleven has signed a contract with Ålesund based ship owner Volstad Maritime on the delivery of two offshore construction vessels (OCV).

Volstad originally placed the orders with Bergen Group Fosen, but the projects have now been sold to Kleven. The vessels are of ST 259 CD design from Skipsteknisk, and the sister vessel ‘Grand Canyon’ was delivered from Bergen Group to Volstad in 2012.
Bergen Group explained the move by the fact that the company’s desire to place a more dedicated focus on offshore related activities.
“It is two large and highly advanced vessels for subsea maintenance and construction work that we’re now going to deliver from Myklebust Verft, and we very much look forward to working with the Volstad family again. Back in 1988, we built the trawler ‘Volstad’ for the Volstad family,” said Ståle Rasmussen, CEO of Kleven.The 127 m long vessels will each have accommodation for 104 persons.
In a filing to the Oslo stock exchange, Volstad said it was very pleased with the outcome: “Kleven is a highly competent yard and we are confident that the vessel will be delivered at the highest quality.”
