New subsea support vessel delivered to Maersk Supply

Chinese COSCO Dalian Shipyard has delivered a new deep subsea support vessel to the Danish shipowner, Maersk Supply Service. 

The new vessel, named Maersk Installer, is 11 meters high, 27 meters wide and 137 meters long. The delivery documents were signed by the builder and the vessel owner on Monday, October 16.

This is the first of four Stingray subsea support vessels to be delivered by the Chinese builder to the Danish shipowner. The Stingray class SSV was designed together with Marin Teknikk.

The delivery dates for the vessels were postponed in mid-2017 due to the current market situation with new dates ranging from summer 2017 to spring 2018.

Commenting on the delivery, Maersk Supply Service Chief Commercial Officer, Carsten Gran Haagensen, said: “Maersk Supply Service’s new Stingray subsea support vessel is built to carry out a wide range of deep and shallow water operations in challenging offshore environments. The vessels have flexible features with a large free deck, a 400t crane and 120 modern single-cabins.

“The key philosophy behind the design and features of the Stingrays is to be able to adapt to many of our customer’s diverse needs. This also means that the vessel have been designed with energy efficiency as a key design parameter, keeping the fuel consumption at a very low level. The four Stingray new-buildings will be a crucial part of Maersk Supply Service’s future fleet allowing us to offer a broader scope of services to our customers.”

Back in July, Maersk Supply secured a contract with Subtec S.A de C.V. of Mexico, a subsidiary of Blue Marine Group, for one of its Stingray vessels. The Stingray vessel will be operating in the Bay of Campeche performing general support duties, including IRM and maintenance of Pemex’s platforms as well as enhancement and well stimulation. The contract will start in autumn 2018 with a firm duration until June 2020.
