Jaya takes delivery of new multi-purpose platform supply vessel
SINGAPORE -- Offshore energy services provider Jaya Holdings Limited has confirmed the on-time delivery of its second new multi-purpose platform supply vessel (MPSV), Jaya Vigilant. The vessel sailed from Jaya’s shipyard in Batam on Monday and was immediately on hire, by its charterer for a term programme, in east Africa.
The vessel will load a remotely operated vessel (ROV) spread and mobilize across the Indian Ocean to load further subsea equipment for the client in Durban.
“The vessel has a 50 ton subsea crane with active heave compensation for service in water depths of up to 3,000 m. We have installed two HiPAP ultra-short base line transponders to give very accurate station keeping for subsea work, in addition to the standard DGPS and Cyscan systems on board,” commented Jaya Holdings’ CEO Venkatraman Sheshashayee.
Jaya Vigilant has accommodation for 60 people and is fully compliant with the SPS Code 2008. She has 1,000 sq m of clear deck space, a modern fast rescue craft, FiFi One, for emergency response and full under deck cargo capacities for mud, bulk, brine and marine gas oil. Jaya has added additional power supplies on deck to support the seabed coring, ROV and hydro-graphic survey spread requirements, and the vessel has its own water maker to increase autonomy.
The next deliveries from Jaya’s Batam yard will be a DP2 work boat with accommodation for 249 people, and two DP2 ROV support vessels with 100 ton cranes.
