Maersk Supply Service’s newest anchor handler, the Maersk Mariner, has started its maiden voyage from Kleven Verft in Norway to Australia.

The Danish offshore vessel provider said via social media channels on Thursday that, upon arrival to Australia, the vessel would begin its first job with the Australian energy giant, Woodside Energy.

Maersk Supply Service took delivery of the Maersk Mariner earlier this month. It is the second of six Starfish anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessels being built for the Danish vessel owner in Norway.

According to the latest AIS data, the anchor handler is currently in the East Mediterranean. Its next stop is Egypt’s Port Said where it is scheduled to arrive on Saturday, July 22.

The Starfish series is of the Salt 200 AHTS design by Salt Ship Design. The entire series will be identical with 95 meters in length, 25 meters in width, an ROV garage for one ROV Launch and Recovery System (LARS) with a built-in ROV control room as well as accommodation for 52 persons.

The first Starfish vessel, the Maersk Master, was delivered and named at Kleven Shipyards in March. The delivery of the remaining four Starfish vessels should happen during 2017.
