Aqualis Offshore to supervise liftboat construction in China

Aqualis Offshore, a specialized marine and offshore engineering consultancy, has been contracted by Mekers Offshore Ltd to supervise the construction of the Zhejiang-based company’s two new liftboats.

A liftboat is a self-propelled, self-elevating vessel with a large open deck capable of carrying equipment and supplies in support of various offshore exploration and production activities. A liftboat can rapidly raise its hull clear of the water to provide a stable platform from which offshore maintenance and construction work can be conducted.

According to the Aqualis, Mekers Offshore’s two liftboats will be built by Dajin Heavy Industries in China. Aqualis Offshore will operate as Mekers Offshore’s on-site team to monitor and supervise the construction of the two liftboats, to ensure that all work is carried out in accordance with the contract, its specifications, the client’s expectations, flag and class requirements, the company said.

Aqualis Offshore’s Shanghai office will manage the project. The project is expected to start in September 2015. Duration of the project is 18 months. The company did not reveal the value of the contract.

“This is a significant project for Aqualis Offshore. I am delighted that Mekers Offshore has put their trust in us. Our team’s construction supervision experience is second to none, and that has helped us secure these important liftboat projects,” says Phil Lenox, director – Asia Pacific, Aqualis Offshore.
