Jaya Pride

Jaya Holdings Limited, operators of a Singapore offshore shipbuilding yard, has delivered a new state-of-the-art multi-purpose offshore support vessel Jaya Pride.


“Jaya Pride is one of the most sophisticated vessels produced by Jaya’s Batam shipyard,” said Chief Executive Officer Venkatraman Sheshashayee, “a highly versatile DP2 workboat for offshore platform maintenance, one we have already fixed on a time charter with a key customer.”


Mr Sheshashayee paid tribute to his shipbuilding team for their dedicated professionalism and coordinated efforts completing the vessel on time and to extremely high standards of fit and finish.


The 78-meter vessel, which can accommodate up to 148 passengers and crew, is classed by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) and will deliver under the Singapore flag.

Lim Siew Koon, President - Shipbuilding / Ship Repair, said: “Jaya Pride is another big step forward for our yard in Batam. It shows our ability to produce more and more complex vessels in our expanding facility. Jaya Pride is fully compliant with SPS Code 2008 and features one of the largest lattice boom cranes we have installed on a self-propelled vessel, a Liebherr model with 40 tons lifting capacity at 40 meters reach, or 50 tons at 20 meters, and man riding rating for personnel transfer.”


George Horsington, President - Business Development, said: “Upon delivery, the vessel will start a term charter with Belait Offshore in the South China Sea. Platform maintenance vessels are in increasing demand, not just in South East Asia but Mexico and West Africa, two markets we are targeting. When offshore infrastructure requires renovation and refurbishment, this type of vessels play a pivotal role supplying accommodation and lifting capability for the work force. They can also be used for hook-up and commissioning work on new facilities, and for painting campaigns.”


Mr Horsington also confirmed Jaya expects to deliver a similar though larger Wärtsilä designed workboat from its Batam yard in 2014. “We are confident Jaya Pride will be the first of many such vessels for our chartered fleet in the coming years.”

 

Jaya Pride’s main Caterpillar engines deliver over 5,150 bhp output, supported by two bow thrusters and two stern thrusters from Kawasaki. The vessel has additional Volvo Penta generators and 650 sqm of clear deck capacity for client equipment and cargo. Jaya Pride is fitted with both four point mooring and a Kongsberg dynamic positioning system. As well as two DGPS reference systems, the vessel has a Kongsberg high precision acoustic positioning (HiPAP) system for precision station-keeping and ROV work.
