The vessel «KL Sandefjord» was officially delivered to K Line Offshore on the 7th of January 2011, and this delivery represents an important milestone for OSM.
The sea trial of «KL Sandefjord» was successfully completed the 10th of December 2010. No AHTS has ever had a better result in a bollard pull test. The result of 390 T bollard pull proves this vessel to be the strongest AHTS in the world as per today. This bollard pull is making them very well suited for anchor handling jobs in ultra deep waters and trenching operations.
«KL Sandefjord» is the first of two AHTS vessels of AH 12 CD design. She is a state of the art vessel with her enormous bollard pull, fitted with an ROV hangar and ODIM LARS system for handling of inspection- and work-class ROVs used in underwater operations.
OSM has been entrusted the building supervision for all K Line Offshore AS new build vessels, two AHTS and four PSV. OSM will have full management of the same vessels. In addition, the PSV «KL Arendalfjord» is already with full OSM management.
