Build no. 382, the first of six anchor handling vessels from Kleven to Maersk Supply Service, was launched from the slipway at Kleven Verft in Ulsteinvik, Norway, on June 10, 2016.
Built for deep water operations, the Starfish vessels are designed for maximum reliability, safety and uptime with a length of 95m and beam of 25m.
The state-of-the art Starfish vessels are designed to provide customers with a reliable and efficient service in anchor handling and towing, and can also carry goods to and from offshore facilities and perform oil recovery operations. The high quality of services can help to keep assets at work in the current tough oil industry supply markets.
There are several innovative features on the Starfish vessels, including an anchor recovery frame that simplifies operations over the stern roller, and a deck handling gantry crane with remotely operated clamping hand.
Insulation on the main engine and the connected system help to prevent an engine room fire and a hybrid propulsion solution allows the possibility of selecting the most optimal operating mode for the task at hand.
Powered by five medium speed engines with total output of more than 23,000 horsepower, a fuel efficient and flexible hybrid propulsion system and fixed pitch on all side thrusters, provides high reliability, good fuel economy, low emissions and excellent station keeping capabilities.
