New Orient Marine, a subsidiary of Luxembourg-based Maritime Construction Services has welcomed MPV Everest, a multi-purpose ice-class vessel to its fleet.

The new vessel, built by Singapore's Keppel Singmarine, can operate in ambient temperature as low as minus 30 degrees Celsius. It will have an Ice Class Arc 5 notation and capabilities such as Class 3 dynamic positioning and navigating in ice of up to one meter thickness.

MPV Everest's versatility allows it to carry out subsea repair and construction activities at 3,000 meters of water depth, well intervention, diving support services with an 18-men twin-bell system, fire-fighting and emergency rescue operations, as well as towing and the provision of supplies in Arctic terrain.

Mr. Knut Reinertz, Director of Maritime Construction Services, said, "The addition of this highly versatile, robust and high specification multi-purpose ice-class vessel to our fleet will enable us to provide a wide variety of value-added services to our customers. It is designed for efficient and high-performance operation even in the harsh Arctic and cold climate conditions. This is a result of our experience as an operator and charterer combined with Keppel's expertise in specialized ice-class vessels. I am confident the vessel will be a success when deployed in cold or warm climate regions."
