These vessels are scheduled to be delivered from the second quarter of 2015 to the third quarter of 2016. The remaining four 327-foot (99.8-meter accommodation/installation maintenance and repair vessels will each feature a range of deck machinery with delivery planned from the third quarter of 2015 through to the second quarter of 2016.
"The offshore accommodation and support services market is growing in the Asia Pacific region," says Francis Wong, vice president, Segment Sales, MacGregor Offshore. "MacGregor continues to strengthen its position in this market and is one of only a few companies that can deliver low-pressure hydraulic, high-pressure hydraulic and electrically-driven mooring systems."
He adds: "This widely based portfolio is backed-up by our strong lifetime support services and worldwide presence."
