GE Marine Solutions and Zentech have together announced a cooperation agreement under which the two parties will work together to provide advanced vessels for their marine and offshore customers.
According to the agreement, GE will provide a full range of marine solutions for vessels designed by Zentech, covering a range of vessel types, including self-elevating lift boats, drill ships and semi-submersibles.
GE’s Marine Solutions business will provide smart and advanced engineering expertise and technology in power generation, propulsion and control.
“This is a defining moment in the evolution of Zentech as one of the world’s leading designers of advanced offshore solutions. As specialist designers, we are proud to be working with GE and look forward to incorporating the best of what GE has to offer into our customers’ future vessels. It’s a great prospect for Zentech, and we strongly believe that this collaboration will provide immeasurable value for our customers,” said Ramesh Maini, president and CEO of Zentech.
The first collaboration project between the companies has already started on Zentech’s liftboat Z-210, currently under construction at CSSC Huangpu Wenchong Shipbuilding in China.
