The group has manufactured a range of specialized ships, including seismic survey vessels for research to identify the best possible subsea areas to drill for oil. These vessels have the ‘green passport’ for energy, efficiency and environment management. These are some of the most multi-functional offshore support vessels and generate more progress in the growth of the oil and gas industry all over the world than any other type of ships. These vessels have broken the world bollard pull record by an AHTS, at 402.4T, surpassing the previous record of 397T.
