Sinopacific Scores Nine

Sinopacific Shipbuilding Group has secured an order for construction of nine Anchor Handling Tug Supply (AHTS) vessels from Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc).

The price of the deal has not been revealed, however the vessels are slated for delivery in 2017 to Adnoc’s wholly-owned subsidiary Esnaad.

The AHTSs will feature the SPA80A design by Sinopacific’s Shanghai Design Associates design team. The AHTS design boasts an electric propulsion system and a bollard pull of 80 mt.

ADNOC firstly launched bids for this new-building project in 2013 and then handed it over to Esnaad for follow up.

ESNAAD Offshore Services Division manages a total of 52 owned and chartered vessels including AHTSs, SSRVs, TSMs, DSVs, PSVs, Utility, DP I and DP II vessels operating in Abu Dhabi offshore area.
