Drydocks delivers Batam-built PSV to REM Offshore

Dubai: Drydocks World has successfully delivered a new Platform Supply Vessel (PSV) built at its Nanindah shipyard on Batam Island, Indonesia, to REM Offshore, a Norway-based shipping company engaged in the oil and gas sector.

REM Supplier was built at one of the three Drydocks World yards on Batam. The UT 755LN type PSV is equipped with FiFi1 Capability and DP 2 dynamic positioning system. The vessel also uses two MAK 6M25 engines instead of a usual Bergen Engine that is characteristic of a Rolls Royce designed vessel.

The shipbuilder emphasises that it took extra care to ensure the ship's functional capabilities meet the standards and specific demands of the offshore industry. The vessel is classified by DNV, is 73.6 metres long and has a beam of 16 metres. This is the first project that Drydocks World has carried out for REM Offshore.

Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman of Drydocks and Maritime World, said: "We continue to make great strides to support the offshore and oil sectors, by building specially equipped multi-purpose vessels that are cost-effective and technology intensive, We will re-invigorate our efforts to cater to the offshore services sector. The company maintains a positive outlook and we are well positioned and ready for the upturn in the next year and beyond. We will strive to be a high quality, competitively priced, shipyard of choice for our customers."  [30/12/10]
