Singapore: Singapore-listed private Chinese yard JES International has commenced the steel cutting for its first two platform support vessels (PSVs) at its shipyard located in Jingjiang City as it diversifies away from its traditional bulk roots.
The UT 755 LN PSV is a well known design, utilising a comprehensive package from Rolls Royce which includes design and engineering services, as well as all main equipment.
JES secured a total of four PSVs in the fourth quarter of 2012 from a customer based in Norway – Vega Offshore. The first two PSVs are expected to be delivered in 4Q2014 and 1Q2015. [13/12/13]
