Perth-based ship building company Strategic Marine has won a contract to supply a 88.5-ft work barge to service the energy and resources sector in Western Australia's north-west. 

 The vessel, being built for Karratha business Offshore Plant Hire, will be based in the Port of Dampier and be chartered to marine operations company Bhagwan Marine. It will service the areas around Dampier, Onslow and Barrow Island and be used primarily for port upgrades, construction support, mooring maintenance and shallow water dive perations.
 
Chief Marketing Officer Terry O'Connor said increasing Strategic Marine's presence in the north-west region of Western Australia was a key element in the company’s growth strategy for the next five years.
 
In addition to the above, Strategic Marine's current projects in the north-west region include construction of work barges for Leighton Contractors and tug pens for Woodside and a range of ship repairs for international ship operators engaged in providing services for the Gorgon Project.
