REM Con orders AHTS's at Aker
Aker Yards has entered into a contract with REM Con AS, a subsidiary of REM Offshore ASA, for construction of two AHTS vessels. The value of the contract is approximately NOK 1.4 billion in total.
The vessels are Anchor Handling Supply Vessels, based on the Aker Yards design AH 12. Delivery is scheduled in Q1 2010, and Q2 2010.
The 95 m x 24 m vessels will have a bollard pull in excess of 300 tons, and will be outfitted with a triple drum winch of 500 tons. Accommodations are planned for 70 persons.
"We are very proud to be able to contribute to the dynamic expansion of REM Offshore's fleet" says President of Offshore & Specialized Vessels in Aker Yards, Roy Reite.
The hulls for the vessels will be built at Aker Yards in Romania, and outfitted at Aker Yards in Norway.
