Lluavi Puts Mexican Shipbuilding on the Map

Thursday, December 24, 2009

Strategic Marine Mexico recently launched the second 170.6 ft Crew Boat, the LLuavi, for Arrendadora Ocean Mexicana (Blue Marine). The two 170.6 ft Crew Boats, Aramara and Lluavi, has seen Blue Marine become the only Mexican ship owner to build offshore vessels in Mexico.

“Not only is this project a huge achievement for Strategic Marine, but for the Mexican community at large, helping to create over 160 jobs in total. We are confident the Mexican shipping industry will take note, and place a higher priority on in-country investments such as these,” stated Ron F Anderson, Managing Director.

The Aramara and Lluavi are part of the plan for renovation and modernization of the fleet of Pemex Exploration and Production; these vessels will provide support for platforms from the home port in Ciudad Del Carmen.

Each Crew Boat is based on Strategic’s Deep V High Speed Planing Hull and will be operated by a 10-man crew with a 60 passengers capacity in addition to 100 tonne of cargo at a cruising speed of 20 knots.

Strategic Marine and joint venture partner Servicios Navales E Industriales S.A. DE C.V. (SENI) remain focused on establishing a strong foothold in the Americas shipbuilding industry. A move that was recently confirmed when SENI were recently awarded a contract to construct two 114.8 ft Buoy Tenders for the Mexico Ministry of Communications and Transport.
