Marin Teknikk designs new vessels for Maersk

Norways’ Marin Teknikk has been revealed as a designer of the vessels China’s Cosco will build for Maersk Supply Service.

Earlier today, Cosco revealed it had signed a contract to build four subsea support vessels for the Danish owner, for a price of $470 million, without providing any details on the vessel specifications.

However, Marin Teknikk has revealed that the vessels will be of the MT6027 design and will be arranged for cable laying and umbilicals installation, as well as cranes for subsea projects.

The MT6027-design vessels will have a length of 138 metres, a beam of 27 metres and have a deadweight of 8,000t. Features of the DP3-rated vessels include 1,925 sq. metres of free deck space, accommodation for 120 people (all in one-man cabins) and a 400t AHC crane, rated for operations in water depths of up to 3,000 metres. The vessels will also have the option to install an under deck carousel for 3,000t of product plus be configured for a 275t vertical lay tower over the deck of the moon pool.

The designer revealed that it had worked on the design for more than ten months after having been approached by Maersk Supply Service which had plans for renewal of their fleet for oil and gas industry.

Marin Teknikk will deliver Design and Engineering package for four large Multi-functional Subsea Support vessels to Cosco. There are also options for an additional pair of vessels.

“This is a project we have been working with for a long time and clearly confirm our position as one of the leading designers of advanced Subsea Support vessels. We have lately designed several vessels in this category, the latest ones to Olympic Shipping and Rem Offshore,” Marin Teknikk said in a statement.
