- Two AHTS (80 metric ton bollard pull with dynamic position capability)
- One 36 meter fast utility/crew boat with option for a second vessel
- Continues its fleet renewal and expansion program to capitalise on strong demand for offshore support vessels
Mainboard-listed Swissco Holdings Ltd., a marine service provider for the shipping and offshore Oil and Gas industries, announced that it has placed orders for two anchor handling tug supply vessels (AHTS) and a fast utility/crew boat with a one plus one option. The newbuild vessels, excluding owner supplied equipment, are worth an aggregate of S$42 million.
