Seacosco takes over six resale PSVs from Cosco Shipping Heavy Industry

Seacosco Offshore, a joint venture formed by China Cosco Shipping and offshore operator Seacor Marine Holdings, has acquired six resale PSVs at Cosco Shipping Heavy Industry’s Guangdong yard.

The vessels were originally ordered at the yard in 2013 and 2014.

In January, China Cosco Shipping and Seacor Marine entered into the joint venture agreement under which the new company will form an initial fleet of eight PSV newbuildings.

Seacosco Offshore has contracted Rolls-Royce to upgrade the six vessels with battery energy storage systems to reduce fuel consumption.

The joint venture will be responsible for full commercial, operational and technical management of the vessels on a worldwide basis.
