    Kleven Shipyard delivers to Maersk the AHTS Maersk Maker

    An official delivery / acceptance ceremony for the Maersk Maker, the sixth and last in a series of Anchor Handling Tug Supply vessels ordered by Maersk Supply Service A/S, was held at Kleven Verft Shipyard 14 February 2019. This is the tenth newbuild vessel delivered to MSS fleet since March 2017 and is the final vessel of the company’s Starfish AHTS newbuilding series, the shipbuilding firm said in a press release.

    The M-series vessel featuring several innovations was designed for operation on deep sea depths.

    Maersk Maker had a naming ceremony at Kleven yard, with Rikke Eskjær as godmother. The vessel will leave Kleven in a few days, heading to Aberdeen and the spot market in the North Sea.

    Olav Nakken, CEO of Kleven Verft AS commented: “The project has been very important for Kleven as well as for all subcontractors who have been involved. Maersk is a quality and safety conscious customer whom we have learned a lot from, especially with focus on HSE and initiation of machinery system. As the Starfish fleet is complete, we take a goodbye with Maersk for now, and of course we wish them welcome back!”

    “As some of the newest vessels operating in the offshore support vessel industry, the M-class series have proven their highly advanced capabilities from the moment of delivery. These vessels are building impressive track records within a range of services and we’ve received positive feedback from our customers around the world,” says Chief Executive Officer Steen S. Karstensen, Maersk Supply Service.

    The Mærsk Maker is of the Salt 200 type and has an open deck area of more than 800m2, with 102m2 covered deck area as well. She is also equipped with anchor handling winch of 450 tons. This is placed in a closed garage so that the crew and equipment are protected from the rough surrounding the vessel occasionally operates in. Mærsk Maker has ice class and is also prepared for ROV operations and oil cleanup- operations. The traction to the vessel is measured at 260 tons.

    About Kleven
    Kleven Verft has delivered about 100 advanced vessels for Norwegian and international customers since 2014. After a challenging period in the wake of the decline in the offshore marked, the yard is now owned by Hurtigruten, and has currently two Hurtigruten vessels under construction. There is also a letter of intent on the construction of a third Hurtigruten ship.
