MAC Expands Its Fleet with Four Newbuilds

Marine Assets Corporation (MAC) has signed four contracts for construction of Offshore Supply Vessels (OSV) with Fujian Mawei Shipyard, SE China, valued at $125m.

This will bring the current MAC order book to 25 vessels, due for delivery between May 2014 and June 2016, ranging in size and specification from 60m PSVs up to 500-man Flotels.

The recent signing relates to 2 additional 60m PSVs, to follow on from the successful launch of the current two, slated for delivery in July 2014 and two newly designed 89m MAC MOTELs which will feature 240 beds, a crane and walk to work gangways.

The motels will be the first OSVs to be delivered with the revolutionary OMPECO Garbage Convertor, which reduces garbage in volume by 70% and converts to inert sterile dust.

Also to be installed is the EPIC POB Monitoring system, which will electronically track POB, both on the vessel, and across the gangway, so enabling the Master to know the exact whereabouts of ship based personal at any given time, an invaluable solution during an emergency muster.
