Kuala Lumpur: Malaysia’s Icon Offshore is chopping and chainging its fleet mix with news of a vessel sale and another aqusition. A 2005-built utility vessel, Tanjung Manis, has been sold to Saudi Arabia’s Hadi Hamad Al-Hammam Marine Services for $3.88m. The disposal, Icon said, is in line with its fleet renewal programme which sees lower specification vessels being replaced with vessels that have greater engine capacity and which are equipped with dynamic positioning capabilities.
Icon Offshore has also bought an accommodation work boat (AWB), SK Line 600, from Nam Cheong International for $30m. This is the first AWB in Icon Offshore’s fleet and forms part of its fleet diversification plan. [11/08/14]
