PHOTO: Third Stingray SSV joins Maersk Supply fleet

Maersk Supply Service-owned third subsea support vessel from the Stingray series has joined the company’s fleet. 

Maersk Supply posted an image via social media channels on Friday of the new vessel, named the Maersk Inventor.

The vessel is the third from a batch of four Stingray-class vessels ordered by Maersk from Cosco. The two previous vessels delivered to MSS are the Maersk Installer and Maersk Involver. The Installer was delivered by Cosco on October 16, 2017, while the Involver was delivered on November 28, 2017.

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

The Stingray vessels were designed by Marin Teknikk for a range of deep and shallow water operations in challenging offshore environments.

Maersk has described the DP3 vessels as having a very energy efficient propulsion set-up, and 400 t active heave compensated crane and two work class ROV’s capable of operating in up to 3,000 m water depth. The free deck is 1,925 m2 large. The vessels offer accommodation for 120 people.

Back in July of last year, 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 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 this year with a firm duration until June 2020.
