Kleven Maritime will carry out an extensive reconstruction of the offshore vessel MT6012 Rem Fortune, from the Platform Service Vessel into the Multi-purpose Support Vessel. The vessel was originally built at Keppel Singmarine Pte. Ltd. in Singapore in 2009, and will be ready for delivery in mid-March 2012.
The reconstruction will involve installation of one 100 tons offshore crane, helideck, opening of the moon pool, installation of an 8 tons auxiliary crane, anti-heeling system, mezzanine deck, and ROV equippment.
Marin Teknikk AS will supply Kleven Maritime with underlying design and engeneering services necessary for completing the reconstruction.
Richard K. Gjerde, Sales Director of Marin Teknikk, emphasises the complexity of such a reconstruction, from demanding re-calculations to rapid delivery of design and drawings.
"Thanks to our highly skilled employees we are able to deliver high quality calculations on short notice, which result in a shortest possible reconstruction time. This will gain both the owner, the yard and Marin Teknikk as supplier of design and engineering services".
The reconstruction will take place at Myklebust Yard in Norway, an combination yard that rates on both newbuilding and reconstruction- and service operations. The activity at the yard is very high these days, with five vessels at the dock.Kleven Maritime has invested 70 million in new dock coming to Myklebust Yard in the spring.
This is a strategically important initiative that sets the yard in a position to take on even greater after-market work for the offshore industry. The dock can take vessels up to 170 meters in length and 28.5 meters in width and has a lifting capacity of 15 000 tons, which is about double the current capacity of Myklebust Yard.
