Posh to manage CIMC semi-submersible crane vessel

Singapore-headquartered offshore marine company PACC Offshore Services Holdings (Posh) has sealed a ship management agreement with asset management company Ocean Challenger, part of Chinese shipbuilder CIMC, for 2012-built semi-submersible crane vessel CIMC Gretha.

Posh has already taken over management of the vessel, which is equipped with DP3 dynamic positioning system, two 1,800-tonne cranes offering heavy lift capacity and offshore accommodation facilities configured for up to 608 people.

Ulva Chai, director of offshore accommodation at Posh, commented: “The addition of CIMC Gretha enhances POSH’s portfolio to provide our clients with diversified service offerings. With the semi-submersible accommodation vessel space becoming more competitive, CIMC Gretha broadens our offshore accommodation capabilities to also include decommissioning and heavy construction activities. We look forward to even more opportunities to work with CIMC in providing services to a wider range of customers.”
