In order to offer our customers the best solutions for demanding operations in vulnerable waters, quality, safety and environment is on top of our agenda,” said Irene Waage Basili, CEO of GC Rieber Shipping.

“We look forward to working together with GC Rieber Shipping on this complex project. GC Rieber is a solid company rich in tradition, and we are very pleased that they have chosen Kleven to build their new seismic vessel,” said Ståle Rasmussen, CEO of Kleven. 

Presently, Kleven has 15 vessels on order, at a total value of around 8.1 billion NOK.
