Fossil energy – service
Maersk Supply Service will reflag one of its energy-efficient M-class anchor handling vessels to the Norwegian flag, hire Norwegian crew and set up an office in Bergen.
The plan is to have its first vessel ready for operation in Norwegian water during summer 2021.
With a strong focus on the towing and installation of floating units for offshore wind and the oil and gas industry, Maersk Supply Service sees a clear link between its core capabilities and the Norwegian market needs.
In addition, the company’s ambition to decarbonise its fleet matches the ambition among key players in Norway.
“Our goal is to have several vessels operating in Norway – both in the oil and gas industry and floating wind. Over the last five years, we have built up a strong track record in solutions capabilities combining our versatile fleet with full project management of offshore projects. Being able to offer full-scope solutions puts Maersk Supply Service in a unique position when it comes to planning and delivering complex offshore projects safely and efficiently,” says Duncan MacPherson, Managing Director in Norway for Maersk Supply Service.
