Basic Offshore contracts with CSSC Guangzhou Huangpu Shipbuilding to build two Havyard 832 L SE Platform Supply Vessels.
Basic Offshore is a newly-established shipping company with its main focus on the market in West Africa, and they have an option of buying an additional six Havyard 832 L SE designed vessels from the shipyard. Both new ships on order are to be delivered in 2014.
The Chinese state-owned shipyard CSSC Guangzhou Huangpu Shipbuilding CO. Ltd. constructs both larger trade tonnage as well as specialized offshore vessels.
The Havyard 832 L SE Design platform supply vessel is an extended version of the original Havyard 832, being both larger and with more crew accommodation. The ship is also prepared for the installation of an offshore crane which will make it possible for it to do light subsea construction work.
