DUBAI: Dubai Drydocks World announced on Tuesday that it has won a $100.4 million contract to build four Platform Supply Vessels (PSV), with option for four more units, for Tidewater Marine LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tidewater Inc., the world's largest and most experienced provider of global marine support services for the offshore energy industry.

The vessels will be built at DDW-Nanindah shipyard at Batam in Indonesia and the first unit is targeted for delivery in 18 months time, followed by the rest every two months. Nanindah is one of the busiest shipbuilding yards in Asia and is widely recognized for its capabilities.

Each PSV will be constructed to Rolls Royce Marine's design, UT755CDL, and powered by Diesel Electric Propulsion. They will be 81.55 meters long, weigh 3,200 tons and will be equipped with a cargo deck measuring 670 square meters.

“We are confident and despite the global downturn we are modifying and managing change with clear vision, we do believe that our new horizon will ensure and enhance the sustainability cycle of our business,” said Khamis Juma Buamim, chairman of Drydocks World and Maritime World.

He added that the contract is recognition of Drydocks World's capabilities as a resilient ship builder and the international maritime industry's vote of confidence in our expertise.

"It is a testimony to our proven leadership within the industry and capability built on strong foundations based on years of experience in handling diverse projects of varying complexity. We thank Tidewater Marine LLC for the trust placed in the specialist ship-building skills of our Nanindah facility and look forward to continued partnership in the future," he said.

Under the terms of the contract, Tidewater Marine LLC has the option to place orders for four more PSV units to be built by DDW-Nanindah on the successful completion of the first four vessels.

The underlying strength of Drydocks World is the engineering capabilities, which rely on proven processes and best practices within the industry. All shipyards have access to comprehensive design, drafting and project management facilities, supported by state-of-the-art hardware and software and skilled engineering personnel.

Some of the recent vessel deliveries that have highlighted the heavyweight construction and engineering capability of Drydocks World yards include Windermere, a subsea operation vessel, and OSA Sampson and OSA Goliath, two of the world's largest offshore construction vessels for Coastline Maritime. CSS Derwent, a Compact Semi-submersible subsea operation vessel for Hallin Marine, is under construction.
