Colombo Dockyard says the new orders are “a result of the owner’s extreme satisfaction of the shipyard, living beyond expectation of quality of material, workmanship and professionalism in executing the construction of the two 130 ton bollard pull anchor handling tug supply vessels that are presently being built at colombo dockyard. these two anchor handlers were unfortunately slightly delayed in their deliveries, owing to an unprecedented delay in supply of large anchor handling winches, manufactured in China by a Norwegian/Singapore based supplier, but are now scheduled to be delivered in mid October and end November, 2011.”

To date, Colombo Dockyard has built four MPSVs in its facility and three more are under construction for another Singapore based company.
