Grandweld Delivers Four Crew Boats to KOC
Grandweld Shipyards, fully integrated shipyard based in Dubai, has delivered four crew boats to Kuwait Oil Company (KOC).
The UAE Grandweld will build six pilot boats in addition to four crew boats for KOC, under the contractual agreement signed in May 2017.
Five boats have been delivered and the remaining five will be delivered in June 2019.
The newly constructed four boats were specially designed to meet the requirements of KOC, in accordance with Lloyd's Register’s classification rules in order to provide the highest operational efficiency and safety, and have been delivered promptly without delay.
JamalAbki, General Manager of Grandweld Shipyards clarified, “Our long years of experience in the shipbuilding industry have taught us that every single day a ship spends out of the water leads to a great loss for the ship’s owner. Hence, our commitment to meeting deadlines with our work is a core component of our workflow."
"Furthermore, our team that consists of more than 800 professional specialists, working in the best shipbuilding and repair environment in the region, share the same belief as well. As a result, we are proud to announce the delivery of these four new boats specially designed to meet the requirements of KOC, a leading company with high standards and specifications to carefully pick products, and trusted suppliers. We assure KOC that its confidence in dealing with us will always be in place," he added.
The delivered Crew Boats can carry 30 passengers in addition to three sailors, and the accommodation cabin is furnished with two bunks. The speed of the boats reach up to 28 nautical knots, with a sailing range of up to 150 nautical miles.
Each boat has been designed to withstand the roughest weather conditions, ensuring safe transportation for crew members to their place of work during their frequent hour-long commutes throughout the year.
