Immediate start of construction
The work for planning and engineering had an early start up that gives the possibility to start construction immediately. The ship is planned delivered in Q4 2021 and tailor made to operate as a service operational vessel.
"It is a great pleasure for Rem Offshore to be able to return to Kleven with a newbuild order, especially at a time that has been marked by uncertainty for the entire local community. This contract shows how adaptable the maritime cluster at Sunnmøre is. For us as a shipping company, this is the first newbuild contract within offshore wind, with a forward-looking design concept that has been developed in close cooperation with Havyard and end customer, Says CEO in Rem Offshore Fredrik Remøy.
Important for the local maritime industry
Both the Owner, shipyard, designer, and several other subcontractors are located locally.
This is an important project for the local maritime industry as it will give assignments and work for many companies next year. In addition to giving ripple effects in a demanding time, it is an exciting assignment for Green Yard Kleven, says Kjetil Bollestad, CEO at Green Yard Kleven.
Future-oriented environmental focus.
The basic principle for the design of the vessel is to meet future operational and environmental requirements with the best and robust technical solutions. In addition to the environmental focus, great emphasis has been placed on safety onboard the vessel for personal and goods. – We are happy to be a contributor to this fantastic project. Based on our long experience with development for offshore wind, we have re-designed the vessel, with a strong focus on safe W2W operations and energy-efficient operation for low emissions. In addition, the vessel is prepared to meet the future demands for zero emissions, both in terms of opportunities for the expansion of the current battery pack and future installation of fuel cells, victory Lars Conradi Andersen, Sales Director Havyard.
