Olympic Shipping has confirmed a contract with Kleven Maritime for the delivery of one advanced Multi Purpose Field Supply & Construction Vessel of the MT 6015 design by Norwegian design company Marin Teknikk. The vessel is to be built at the yard Kleven Verft in Ulsteinvik, Norway, with delivery set for June 2012.

The vessel is the second of two identical vessels, where the first was contracted in August 2010.

The vessels represent a new generation of environmentally friendly and operational state of the art multipurpose vessels, where much attention is put on fuel economy, low emissions and large capacities both above and below deck.

Class notation Ice C provides for suitability in northern areas, and the vessels will be equipped for oil recovery operations (NOFO 2009). Dead weight is 4 800 tons, length 93,8 meters, beam 20 meters, deck space 1 060 m2. The accommodation area has a capacity of 60 persons. The MT 6015 is being built in accordance with the new SPS code, and will include facilities that will make the vessel very well suited to ROV and subsea construction work.

The contracts will bring large subcontracting orders for local suppliers like Hareid Elektriske Teknikk and Rolls-Royce Marine. Contract value is NOK 385 mill pr vessel. Kleven Maritime now has an orderbook of 10 vessels at a value of NOK 4,2 billions.
