MCTAYS, the shipbuilding subsidiary of HS Ocean Holdings (HSOH), has signed an agreement to distribute Doosan Marine Diesel Engines in the UK, Nigeria, Gabon and Congo.
The company will supply both mechanical engines and next generation electronically controlled engines which comply with European emission criteria.
Potential customers include the fishing fleets operating off the UK coast, as well as tugs, crew transfer vessels, passenger ferries and offshore supply and support vessels.
The most recent vessel built by MCTAYS, the Multi-Role Vessel (MRV) Vital for Carmet Tugs, was fitted with a Doosan marine diesel engine.
The partnership will be officially launched at Seawork 2014, the International Commercial Marine Exhibition and Forum being held in Southampton from June 10 to June 12.
Peter Breslin, Managing Director of MCTAYS, said: “We are delighted to have signed an agreement enabling MCTAYS to act as agent for Doosan Marine Diesel Engines in the UK, Nigeria, Gabon and Congo.
Doosan has developed the next generation of electronically controlled diesel engines which we are excited about being able to distribute along with its existing mechanical engines in these key territories.”
