Swissco Expands Fleet with 3 New Vessels

Singapore’s Swissco Holdings, a marine service provider for the shipping and offshore Oil and Gas industries, has placed orders for 3 vessels worth an aggregate of S$35 million.

 

The order consists of two anchor handling tug supply vessels (“AHTS”), and one Multipurpose Utility Tug.

The two units of AHTS with 80 tons bollard pull will be built at a Northern Chinese shipyard, while the multipurpose utility tug will be built at a Southern Chinese Yard. The newbuild vessels are expected to be delivered in FY2015, adding to the Group’s fleet capabilities.

As part of its overall strategy in maintaining a competitive fleet of vessels available for charter, Swissco continuously renews its fleet to maintain a low age profile. This is complemented by expanding the fleet to improve the range of vessels offered and capabilities. The table provided in the next page shows an update on the vessel fleet.

Alex Yeo, Chief Executive Officer of Swissco “Expansion and renewal of the fleet will help us tap on the growing demand for offshore support vessels, and give us the capability to provide high-quality and competitive services to meet the needs of our clients. The addition and ownership of these 3 new vessels will help us improve our operating efficiency and also show our commitment to grow our chartering business. 

We believe demand for vessel chartering services will remain sustainable and we will continue to focus on our vessel expansion and fleet renewal program to enhance our fleet capabilities.”
