Maersk Supply Service’s new anchor handler, the Maersk Mariner, has arrived to Australia for its first job with the energy company Woodside. 

Maersk Supply Service took delivery of the Maersk Mariner, the second of six Starfish anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessels being built in Norway, in early July. The vessel headed to Australia later that month.

In its social media update on Friday, Maersk Supply Service reported that the vessel completed its maiden voyage to Australia from Kleven Verft in Norway, and is resting up for its first job with Woodside.

The Starfish series is of the Salt 200 AHTS design by Salt Ship Design. The entire series will be identical with 95 meters in length, 25 meters in width, an ROV garage for one ROV Launch and Recovery System (LARS) with a built-in ROV control room as well as accommodation for 52 persons.

The delivery of the remaining four Starfish vessels should happen during 2017.
