Keppel Singmarine Pte Ltd (Keppel Singmarine), the shipbuilding arm of Keppel Offshore & Marine Limited (Keppel O&M), has demonstrated its commitment to meet the needs of customers with the timely and safe deliveries of five ships.

These five vessels, including a Multi-Purpose Supply and Support Vessel (MPSSV), an Anchor Handling Tug Supply (AHTS) vessel and three tugboats, have all exceeded their contractual bollard pull and speed during the sea trials.

Greatship Mohini, a MPSSV was delivered to Greatship Global Offshore Services Pte. Ltd (Greatship), a member of the Great Eastern Shipping Group of India. This 308.4 ft long vessel has been equipped with two units of electrically driven 2600 kW Azimuth thrusters and three units of 1050 kW tunnel thrusters to achieve a Dynamic Positioning II capability. Greatship Mohini is the second state-of-the-art vessel that Keppel Singmarine has built for Greatship. This vessel has since been acquired by Norwegian offshore shipping company, Rem Offshore ASA.

The Company also delivered Hadi 28, an AHTS to its regular client Hadi H. Al-Hamman Establishment (Hadi) for deployment in Saudi Arabia. The 80-tonne bollard pull vessel is equipped with dynamic positioning system and Azimuth thrusters to enhance its position keeping and maneuverability as she performs various supply and support functions for the offshore installation and floating units.

In addition, two 50-tonne bollard pull twin-screw Azimuth Stern Drive (ASD) tugboats, Mirbat and BT Bontang 08, have been delivered to Salalah Port Services Company SAOG of the Sultanate of Oman and PT. Badak NGL in Indonesia respectively. Meanwhile in China, Keppel Nantong Shipyard has also delivered a 65-tonne bollard pull twin-screw ASD tugboat, KST 56, to Keppel Smit Towage.

All three tugboats are of proprietary MTD design developed by Keppel Singmarine’s technology unit, Marine Technology Development.
