Rolls-Royce is to deliver an extensive package of advanced deck machinery to six new anchor handling tug supply vessels (AHTS) to be built by Kleven in Norway for the Danish ship owner Maersk Supply Service.
The contract with Kleven is worth in excess of £54 million ($84.54M) to Rolls-Royce, and includes an option for an additional four vessels. This represents the largest single contract for deck machinery that Rolls-Royce has won, the company said in the press release.
The 95m long vessels are designed by Salt Ship Design, and will be built at Kleven’s two shipyards in Norway: Kleven Verft and Myklebust Verft.
Each vessel is of Salt200 design and will be equipped with a triple drum main anchor handling winch with a pull capacity of 500 tonnes; two secondary winches; cargo securing winches and other auxiliary winches; and a dry bulk cargo system. The delivery from Rolls-Royce also includes rudders and steering gear for all six vessels. An additional option for an Anchor Recovery Frame, used for assisting launch and recovery of anchors, is also specified.
Ståle Rasmussen, CEO of Kleven, said: “We look forward to working closely with Rolls-Royce on this large and important project for Maersk. This large order shows the capabilities of the maritime cluster in Norway, and close cooperation within the cluster is an asset to our customers.”
