Maersk Mobiliser was delivered from Kleven yard Wednesday (Oct 31); the fifth vessel in a series of six anchor handlers for Maersk Supply Service A/S. Built for deepwater operations, the so-called Starfish series is equipped with a range of innovative features, securing all the sister vessels work from the very beginning.

Fifth Starfish anchor handler joins Maersk fleet

Maersk Mobiliser is of Salt 200 design and has an open deck space of more than 800m2, with an additional covered deck space of 102m2. The vessel is equipped with a 450-tonne anchor handling winch housed in an enclosed garage to protect the crew and the equipment in harsh conditions. Maersk Mobiliser has Ice 1A classification and is prepared for oil recovery. The bollard pull of the vessel is measured to 260 tonnes.

Maersk Mobiliser was christened during a naming ceremony at Kleven yard today with Trine Munch Agerskov as sponsor. The vessel will leave Kleven this week to mobilize for a future engagement with a major Canadian operator for drilling support and ice management duties.

The last vessel in the series will be delivered from Kleven in the end of January 2019.
