#MAINPORT ACQUIRE VESSEL – Cork based Irish Mainport Holdings has acquired the seismic-support ship, Forth Hunter, which was handed over to senior management officials of the Irish company in Edinburgh last week, writes Jehan Ashmore.
The vessel has been renamed Mainport Kells and is currently working out of the Norwegian port of Bergen for clients on a new long-term contract working in the seismic industry in the North Sea.
She was built in 2008 at the Shin Yang shipyard, Malaysia and her principle dimensions are 27m (length) x 11m (beam) x 4.3m (draft). Accommodation is available for up to 12 crew on board the 467 gross tonnage vessel which flies the Gibraltar flag.
The newcomer joins the group's large fleet which includes subsidiary Mainport International Corporation which has three vessels in service.
