PHOTO: Maersk’s first Starfish AHTS on sea trials

Danish offshore vessel provider Maersk Supply Service posted an image on social media channels showing its first Starfish series anchor handling vessel undergoing sea trials.

Maersk Supply said on Friday that the first of six Starfish newbuilds started sea trials during the week and that it would work on the Janice decommissioning project in the North Sea after delivery from the yard.

To remind, the AHTS vessel was launched from the Kleven Verft shipyard in Norway back in the summer of 2016.

Delivery of the first two vessels had been scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2016, but according to Kleven Verft’s order list, the delivery should happen this month while the other four will be delivered in April, June, August, and October of 2017.

The newbuild AHTS has a bollard pull of more than 230 tonnes and towing drums designed for 500 tonnes of pull force. Specs claim that the vessel has a 4,600 tonnes of deadweight capacity, and a deck capacity of 2,500 tonnes.

The DP-2 vessel is 95 meters long, 25 meters wide and has an ROV garage for one ROV Launch and Recovery System (LARS) with a built-in ROV control room. It can accommodate 52 persons.
