Halul to Purchase Four Offshore Vessels

Monday, May 15, 2006
Halul Offshore Services (HOSC) will buy four new safety standby vessels at a cost of about $16m and signed a contract with a Singaporean shipbuilder Pacific Ocean Engineering (POE). The contract for the vessels, expected to be built in 16 months at the POE’s shipyard in China, was signed by HOSC chairman Sheikh Hamad bin Suhaim al-Thani and POE managing director Raymond Quah. The vessels, designed to provide safety cover to offshore installations for protection and rescue operations, are equipped with fire fighting pumps, life saving gadgets and environment monitoring systems for checking poisonous hydrogen sulphide gas and flammable gases. Each vessel will have a fast rescue craft capable of being fast deployed for rescue of survivors from the sea. HOSC operates a diversified fleet of 40 young and modern offshore support vessels, is experienced in ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicles)/ tug supply vessels (TSVs), crew boats, accommodation work vessels and crane boats. HOSC is building two anchor handling TSVs in India, one of which, Halul 24, is scheduled for delivery this month and the other by September. It is also building two DP 1 anchor handling TSVs at Q-con Marine fabrication yard in Mesaieed. Source: Gulf Times
