Newbuild Jaya Vigilant MPSV Leaves Batam for East Africa Upon Delivery

Singapore-listed offshore energy services provider Jaya Holdings Limited (Jaya) reported Tuesday that it has delivered its second new Multi-Purpose Platform Supply Vessel (MPSV), Jaya Vigilant as scheduled. She sailed from Jaya’s shipyard in Batam, Indonesia Monday and was immediately on hire by its charterer for a term program in East Africa. The vessel will load a Remotely Operated Vessel (ROV) spread and mobilize across the Indian Ocean to load further subsea equipment for the client in Durban in October.

“Jaya Vigilant exemplifies the increasingly sophisticated vessels which Jaya’s Batam shipyard is able to build and customize on time and within budget,” commented Jaya Holdings’ CEO Venkatraman Sheshashayee.

“The vessel has a 50 ton subsea crane with active heave compensation for service in water depths of up to 9,843 feet (3,000 meters). We have installed two HiPAP ultra short base line transponders to give very accurate station keeping for subsea work, in addition to the standard DGPS and Cyscan systems on board."

“In order to save our clients mobilization time and cost, the vessel was delivered fully equipped with a mezzanine deck for the ROV spread, additional cables, survey area on the bridge and additional satellite broadband internet connection in place. Similar to her sister ship, “Jaya Valour”, there is a gym and an internet café on board for crew."

Jaya Vigilant has accommodation for 60 people on board and is fully compliant with the SPS Code 2008. She has 10,764 square feet (1,000 square meters) of clear deck space, a modern fast rescue craft, FiFi One for emergency response and full under deck cargo capacities for mud, bulk, brine and marine gas oil. Jaya has added additional power supplies on deck to support the seabed coring, ROV and hydro-graphic survey spread requirements, and the vessel has its own water maker to increase autonomy.

The next deliveries from Jaya’s Batam yard will be a dynamic positioning 2 (DP2) work boat with accommodation for 249 people, and two DP2 ROV support vessels with 100 ton cranes.
