MMA Offshore’s newbuilds begin first contracts

Australian shipowner MMA Offshore has informed that its newbuild offshore vessels, the MMA Prestige and MMA Pinnacle, have been delivered and have begun their first contracts.

The Australian offshore vessel owner said on social media on Wednesday that both vessels have been configured for saturation diving operations, with the modifications and mobilizations completed in Singapore and Batam and with the integration engineering solutions provided in-house. The company has not disclosed the clients nor has it released any details regarding the financial aspects of the contract.

The MMA Pinnacle hull was launched on April 23, 2016, while the hull of the MMA Prestige was officially launched on November 16, 2015, both from the Batam shipyard in Indonesia.

The newbuild ROV support and light construction sister vessels have been, according to specs, designed with ultra-deep water lift capabilities with an AHC subsea crane capable of lifting 100 tonnes from deck to seabed 2,000 meters below.

The DP2 vessels are powered by a 10,000 kW diesel electric system consisted of four separate 2,500 kW generators. Specifications state that it can handle as much as 10 tons per square meter of deck strength for demanding payloads. Both vessels can accommodate 100 people and provide 500 kVA of power for the ROV.

The vessels’ AIS data show the MMA Pinnacle anchored at the port of Mumbai, while the MMA Prestige is shown as sailing past the west coast of Borneo.
