Qatari shipping company Milaha has taken delivery of ‘Milaha Explorer’, a new liftboat which will be deployed offshore in support of field maintenance operations.

The vessel was built by Bohai Shipbuilding Heavy Industries at its yard in Liaoning Province in China, and was designed by the China-based Tianjin De-Sail Machinery Equipment.

Named ‘Milaha Explorer’, the newbuild will be the biggest liftboat to be owned by a Qatari company, Milaha said. The liftboat can accommodate 300 persons on board.

The vessel will be operated by Halul Offshore Services, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Milaha.

Milaha President and CEO Abdulrahman Essa Al-Mannai said: “We are delighted to add the ‘Milaha Explorer’ to our fleet, which allows us to partner ever more closely with leading global energy companies to meet their diverse needs, now and in the future.”

Vivek Seth, CEO of Halul Offshore Services, said: “We have ordered a particularly large liftboat to address the growing demand for these types of assets, both in the region and the world. We believe that this strategic asset will help augment our status as a partner in the life extension of mature fields and enhanced field maintenance services.”
