swirepacahtsSingapore Technologies Engineering Ltd reports that its marine arm, ST Marine, has won two shipbuilding contracts worth about Singapore $75 million from Swire Pacific Offshore Operations (Pte) Ltd.

The contracts are for two Anchor Handling Tug Supply (AHTS) vessels, measuring 92 m by 22 m. They are additional to the contract placed with the shipyard by Swire Pacific Offshore in June 2011 for four AHTS vessels of Havyard 844 XL design. For the latest contracts, Swire Pacific Offshore will supply a larger proportion of the major equipment for ST Marine’s integration and installation. Construction will commence in 2013.

The two AHTS will adopt the latest Dynamic Positioning technology and will be Special Purpose Ship 2008 compliant. They will offer clear deck space of about 650 sq.m . When delivered from the shipyard in second and third quarters of 2014 respectively, they will join Swire  Pacifoc Offshore’s fleet supporting the latest generation of semi-submersible rigs operating in deep water and harsh environment.
