Jaya Majestic

Offshore marine services provider Jaya, now part of Mermaid Marine Australia Ltd. (MMA), today delivered Jaya Majestic, a new state-of-the-art anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessel into MMA’s international fleet.

Jaya Majestic was built at the company’s Singapore shipyard and is the first vessel to be delivered following the acquisition of 100% of Jaya Holdings’ subsidiaries by MMA earlier this year.

MMA is Australia’s largest marine services provider to the offshore oil and gas industry. MMA’s S$625 million acquisition of Jaya’s subsidiaries included Jaya’s fleet of 27 vessels, the new build order book of vessels, and two shipyards in Singapore and Batam, Indonesia.

Jeffrey Weber, Managing Director of MMA, said, “Jaya Majestic is one of our most sophisticated vessels and delivers on MMA’s strategy to increase exposure to high specification vessel classes. The delivery of Jaya Majestic is testament to the company’s technical competence in shipbuilding, which allows us to optimize our fleet to meet our clients’ current and emerging marine requirements.”

Weber  continued, “With MMA’s successful acquisition of Jaya Holdings’ subsidiaries, we have created a company with global scale and presence. We now operate a fleet of over 60 vessels in major oil and gas regions in the world and are supported by four world class, strategically-located onshore facilities in Australia and South East Asia.”

The Singapore flagged Jaya Majestic is a sophisticated AHTS ideally suited to supporting jack-up and semi-submersible rigs, Floating Production Storage Offloading facilities (FPSOs) and offshore construction spreads. The 12,070 BHP vessel is equipped with a Rolls Royce Marine deck package, including a 300-metric-ton line pull winch and achieved 160 tons continuous bollard pull at sea trials. The vessel is fitted out with modern accommodation for 46 passengers and crew in single or double cabins.

Jaya Majestic has high cargo deadweight of over 3,000 tons for supply operations. The vessel’s clear deck area of over 600 square meters is about 20% larger than equivalent vessels in the region, providing customers with extra capacity for rig support. Jaya Majestic features firefighting equipment to FiFi 1 standard and oil dispersant equipment, making it suitable for emergency response. The 78 metre vessel has an 18.5-metre beam, wider than most comparable ships in the region, giving it enhanced stability. Two bow thrusters and two stern thrusters give excellent station keeping in rough weather or heavy currents, and the vessel is classed to DP2 certification by the American Bureau of Shipping. It is expected that Jaya Majestic will commence operations in South East Asia in August 2014.

Jaya Majestic was named by Dolly Heng, wife of Heng Chiang Gnee, Non-Executive Director, Mermaid Marine Australia Ltd., at the company’s Tuas Yard in Singapore.
