Marin Teknikk Designs New Vessel for Otto Candies

Norway’s Marin Teknikk AS will design and engineer a new Subsea Support & Construction vessel for Otto Candies LLC in Des Allemands, Louisiana, USA.

The vessel will be built on the owner’s private shipyard, Candies Shipbuilders. The ship is a new design from Marin Teknikk called MT6020.

The MT6020 design is an innovation from Marin Teknikk and is a continuation of the lessons learned from a series of MT6016 design, which has been built more than 20 times during the last 8 years. The new vessel has a length of 102 m and a width of 20.6 m, and will be equipped with a 150T crane and two ROVs (unmanned submarines) that can operate down to 3000m.

Within this agreement there is also an option for another slightly bigger vessel, a MT6022 design with a length of 108 m, beam of 22 m and arranged for 110 persons.

The vessel has accommodation for 90 people and is designed according to the latest rules in terms of stability, security, and emissions of pollutants to the environment.

“We are extremely pleased to sign this contract as it is the first for Marin Teknikk in USA. For us this is a breakthrough in a market that has historically been difficult for other than national players to operate in. It is a confirmation that Norwegian ship design has a very good reputation in the world, and we expect again this opens up the possibility of several agreements later. Several Norwegian equipment suppliers are actual for delivery to the project,” said the company in a statement.
