Maersk Supply Service Completes Fleet Renewal Program

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 2/15/2019, Location: Europe

Maersk Maker, the final vessel of Maersk Supply Service’s Starfish AHTS newbuilding series, was delivered yesterday from Kleven Yard. The vessel’s arrival completes Maersk Supply Service’s Fleet Renewal Program, with ten new-build vessels delivered and 23 vessels divested over the last three years.

The average age of Maersk Supply Service’s current 44-vessel fleet has been reduced to less than ten years. The composition of the renewed fleet – 30 AHTS vessels, 12 SSVs and 2 PSVs – supports Maersk Supply Service’s integrated solutions offerings for offshore projects in the areas of towing, mooring and installation; subsea construction; inspection, maintenance and repair; and light well intervention.

New-building program complete
Ten new-build vessels have joined the Maersk Supply Service fleet since March 2017, including six M-class AHTS vessels of the Starfish series and four I-class SSVs of the Stingray series. Both vessel types have been designed to optimize reliability, energy efficiency, comfort, and safety.

“As some of the newest vessels operating in the offshore support vessel industry, they 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,” says CEO Steen S. Karstensen.

Vessel divestment program complete
In 2016, Maersk Supply Service set out to reduce its fleet in response to the global over-supply of offshore support vessels. A total of 23 PSV and AHTS vessels have since left the fleet, with the final vessel divested in October 2018.

“It has been a priority for us to do our part in addressing the over-supply in the industry, as well as strengthening our asset base for project delivery. Here at the end of the renewal program, we have a more modern and competitive fleet to meet the needs of our customers,” says Steen S. Karstensen.
