Sri Lanka's Colombo Dockyard reports that it has signed contracts for the construction of four 78 m Multipurpose Platform Supply Vessels (MPSV) each with a 3,600 deadweight capacity.
The orders come from a Singapore based owner and the price has not been disclosed.
The MPSVs are designed by Seatech Solutions International (S) Pte Ltd of Singapore and incorporate an oil recovery arrangement and operate as advanced PSVs as well as light construction support vessel, complying to SPS Code 2008 and the Clean Design requirements of Class NK, dynamic positioning, fire fighting capability, oil recovery capability, capability to support ROV operations. The vessels will be designed and built to accommodate a 50 T active heave compensated crane, an A-frame and heli-deck.
Endurance will be 35 days with a cruising range of about 9,200 nautical miles speed of 14.5 knots
The vessels will have accommodations for 50 persons and they will be be the first built by Colombo Dockyard to Class NK classification.
Colombo Dockyard says the new orders are "a result of the owner’s extreme satisfaction of the shipyard, living beyond expectation of quality of material, workmanship and professionalism in executing the construction of the two 130 ton bollard pull anchor handling tug supply vessels that are presently being built at colombo dockyard. these two anchor handlers were unfortunately slightly delayed in their deliveries, owing to an unprecedented delay in supply of large anchor handling winches, manufactured in China by a Norwegian/Singapore based supplier, but are now scheduled to be delivered in mid October and end November, 2011."
To date, Colombo Dockyard has built four MPSVs in its facility and three more are under construction for another Singapore based company.
