Maersk Supply Service has completed the Fleet Renewal Programme, with ten newbuild vessels delivered and 23 vessels divested over the last three years.

The Fleet Renewal was completed with the delivery of Maersk Maker Anchor Handling Tug Supply Vessel (AHTS), the final vessel of Maersk Supply Service’s Starfish AHTS newbuilding series, from Kleven Yard.

The composition of the renewed fleet, 30 AHTS vessels, 12 Subsea Support Vessels (SSVs) and 2 Platform Supply Vessels (PSVs), supports Maersk Supply Service’s offerings for offshore projects in the areas of towing, mooring and installation, subsea construction, inspection, maintenance and repair and light well intervention.

According to the company, the average age of Maersk Supply Service’s current 44-vessel fleet has been reduced to less than ten years.

Ten newbuild vessels have joined the Maersk Supply Service fleet since March 2017, including six M-class AHTS vessels of the Starfish series and four I-class SSVs of the Stingray series.

As some of the newest vessels operating in the offshore support vessel industry, they have proven their highly advanced capabilities from the moment of delivery. These vessels are building impressive track records within a range of services and we’ve received positive feedback from our customers around the world,” said chief executive officer Steen S. Karstensen.

In 2016, Maersk Supply Service set out to reduce its fleet in response to the global over-supply of offshore support vessels. A total of 23 PSV and AHTS vessels have since left the fleet, with the final vessel divested in October 2018.

It has been a priority for us to do our part in addressing the over-supply in the industry, as well as strengthening our asset base for project delivery. Here at the end of the renewal programme, we have a more modern and competitive fleet to meet the needs of our customers,” added Steen S. Karstensen.
