An official delivery/acceptance ceremony for the Maersk Maker, sixth in a series of seven Anchor Handling Tug Supply vessels, was held at Kleven Shipyard 14 February 2019. The Starfish series vessels are being built for Maersk Supply Service A/S. 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.

Mr 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!”

Chief Executive Officer Steen S Karstensen, Maersk Supply Service, said that “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.”
