Havyard Leirvik to build advanced DSV

Havila Shipping ASA has announced the building of a state-of-the-art Diving Support Vessel of Havyard 858 DSV design at Havyard Leirvik, Norway.

The vessel is scheduled for delivery in February 2010 and will immediately enter into a 10 year firm bareboat contract with further option periods.

The new vessel will be 120 meter over all with a 21 meter beam and have a 250 tonne crane and accommodations for 120 people.

With an ice class hull and Class 3 dynamic positioning, the vessel will be in compliance with the most demanding maritime and environmental regulations worldwide.

Havila Shipping says the vessel will be a leader in its class with a unique 24-man saturation diving system fitted with twin heave-compensated diving bells certified for Norwegian regulations.

The vessel will be jointly owned by Havila Shipping ASA and a North Sea based contractor who will operate it. All details are being finalized and Havila Shipping says more information will be made available upon signing of the agreement.
