Simon Møkster Places Order for Multi Service Vessel (Norway)

Norway’s Simon Møkster Shipping increases its focus on the subsea market by ordering a new build special designed for ROV work, survey, diving and light construction work. In addition, the vessel will be able to provide services to windmill construction work.

It is designed by Multi Maritime AS in Førde and is called MM85 MSV. The vessel will be build at Simek Shipyard in Flekkefjord. The design is a further development of the two vessels Atlantis Dweller and Stril Explorer, which Møkster got delivered in 2010/2011. Atlantis Dweller has been sold to Fugro RUE, whilst the Stril Explorer is 100% owned by Møkster. The Stril Explorer was in May awarded a one year contract, including two annual options, with Hallin Marine. The MM85 MSV has the following main parameters:

“Møkster have great faith in the future subsea marked, and hopes that the vessel is to work in an exciting market both nationally and internationally in the future,” said the company in a statement.

The new build will be delivered in May 2014.
