Malaysian Firm Takes Delivery

Tuesday, September 06, 2005
Syarikat Borcos Shipping, based in the city of Miri in Sarawak East Malaysia, has taken delivery of the first of two fast crew boats from Strategic Marine Singapore. A sister ship is scheduled for delivery to the firm in the late fall of 2005. Most of the aluminum for the 132 x 24.6 ft. (40.3 x 7.5-m) boat was cut in Australia and shipped in containers to the company shipyard in Singapore for assembly. Strategic Marine Singapore Pte. Ltd. is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Australian parent company. The parent firm has delivered over 150 high speed aluminum vessels with 40 percent of their production going to the international market. The new vessel, Borcos Firdaus I, was built to specs by Southerly Design of Australia. They feature tankage for 55,000 liters of diesel fuel and 25,000 liters of fresh water. Accommodation is provided for ten crew and 80 passengers. The 89 sq. m. after deck has a 50 ton cargo capacity. The Borcos Firdaus I is powered by two V12 1350 hp (1007 kW) at 1950 rpm Cummins KTA38 M2 main engines and a single center-mounted V16 Cummins KTA50 M2 generating 1800 hp (1343 kW) at 1900 rpm. Her sister ship will have all the same specs except it will have three V12 1350 hp (1007 kW) at 1950 rpm Cummins KTA38 M2 main engines. Auxiliary power on both vessels is provided by Cummins 6BT-powered 68Kwe, 3 Phase, 415 volt, 50 hz generators.
