Drydocks World delivered Lewek Fulmar, the world’s first UT788 CD Multi-functional Ultra Deep Water Anchor Handling Tug, Supply and Service vessel (AHTS). The vessel was built at Drydocks World’s Singapore facility. The vessel has reportedly broken the world bollard pull record by an AHTS at 402.4T, surpassing the previous record of 397T. 
“We have now built four such vessels at our facility in Nanindah and a sixth vessel is under construction in Singapore. As a result of our proven experience and diverse capabilities in building work boats and support vessels, we have built up a strong international clientele accumulated over the past decades of operation. Our new building programme has achieved a great impetus recently and we are pushing towards operational excellence through lean management and improving efficiency at all levels. We are emphasising on providing value added services to our customers,” said Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman of Drydocks World and Maritime World.   
Lewek Fulmar is one of the most advanced subsea construction vessels in the global oil and gas industry, equipped with an ultra-deepwater UT788 CD AHTS system and subsea equipment such as wellheads, manifolds and jumpers. It was specially designed to handle supply duties between land bases and drilling sites, towing of threatening objects, assist during deepwater anchor handling and tanker loading. In addition, it is capable of carrying out field inspection, maintenance and repair roles. The vessel will be able to perform a major part of the work done by most deepwater vessels, but at a much more competitive price as a result of the use of a diesel electric engine which makes for low fuel consumption.
“We are delighted to have achieved this world record for an AHTS," said Lionel Lee, Group Managing Director of EMAS. "Lewek Fulmar is one of our four new state-of-the-art vessels which will significantly add to the Group’s expansion into ultradeepwater territory. We are continually expanding the capabilities of our vessels so as to provide a diverse offering across the offshore oil and gas industry.”
