Unithai Shipyard and Engineering, Thailand’s topr shipyard, has expanded its operations to a deepsea port in Thailand’s western Ranong province.
Supporting the government’s strategic plan to develop Ranong port as a marine transport, logistics and offshore business hub for the region, Unithai Shipyard has signed a memorandum of understanding with Yongchao Company, which provides a wide range of logistical support for oil and gas operations in the Andaman Sea.
“In combining the capabilities of Yongchao and Unithai Shipyard, the operations have become a one-stop-service,” Unithai Shipyard managing director Teerapon Udomkanjananan said. “Once a vessel arrives at the port, all services – including formalities, repairs, crew changes and warehousing – will be completed in just one stop. This will support the expansion of marine and offshore business in this region in the future. And at the same time, this collaboration will also enhance our capabilities in providing the only heavy fabrications available on the Andaman Sea coast.”
Yongchao is a service provider for warehousing and berthing, established in 2003 to support oil and gas operations in this area.
