Seismic Vessel Order for Kleven Maritime
Friday, 04 May 2012 | 00:00
Sanco Shipping AS has declared an option for a second seismic vessel to be built at Kleven Maritime’s yard Myklebust Verft in Norway.
The vessel, to be named Sanco Sword, is to be delivered in Q1 2014. Its sister vessel Sanco Swift will be delivered from Myklebust Verft in July 2013. Kleven Maritime has nine vessels in its order book, with a total value of more than four billion NOK (€132 million).
“We are impressed by Sanco and their investments in the very advanced seismic market. For us it is of great value to establish a local cooperation also within the seismic segment,” said CEO Ståle Rasmussen in Kleven Maritime.
“Quality and on time delivery is essential for us, and it is great that we can find a shipyard providing this in our local area,” said CEO Ivar Slettevoll in Sanco Shipping. “We chose to declare the option for the second vessel because we see a continuous need for new tonnage within the seismic market.”
The vessel is of ST 324 CD design from Skipsteknisk AS in Ålesund.
