GAC Fujairah inks husbandry contract with KOTC

Kuwait Oil Tanker Co (KOTC) has awarded a ship husbandry contract to GAC Fujairah for Fujairah, Khor Fakkan and Singapore anchorage.

It is the third time that KOTC has awarded husbandry contracts to GAC Fujairah and the contract covers  ship supply services, spare parts handling and a range of other logistical services to its vessels arriving in Fujairah, Khor Fakkan and Singapore anchorage.

The contract will see GAC handling 450 contracts a year with this number growing as GAC expands its fleet.

“We are pleased to be working with GAC again and we look forward to closer cooperation between the two companies,” said a KOTC senior management representative.

GAC’s Johan Thuresson, gm – shipping services Fujairah & Dubai adds: “Effective husbandry ensures efficient vessel turnaround, which in turn minimises the time spent in port. GAC Fujairah’s husbandry services have time and again generated tangible time and cost savings for our clients like the Kuwait Oil Tanker Company.
