The new OSV is of a Havyard 832 design, and is the seventh vessel Havyard has constructed for the Indian shipping company Global Offshore Services.

Havyard say that this is the largest ever vessel to be named in Fosnavaag, something which justified some major celebrations, and Havyard invited everyone in the town to an open boat session plus a free concert from the well-known Norwegian rap duo Erik and Kriss.

During the naming ceremony the godmother, Bianca Kremer, wished the vessel good fortune and success, before the bottle in traditional Norwegian fashion was broken as it hit the deep blue hull.

OSV Makalu
has a crew of 26, and was heading straight for West Africa after the naming ceremony where the vessel will be operating for Shell.

-         Design:                Havyard 832
-         Vessel type:         Offshore supply vessel

-         Breadth:               17.6 m
