SINGAPORE – Jaya Holdings confirms the on-time delivery of its second new multi-purpose platform supply vesselJaya Vigilant.

She has sailed from Jaya’s shipyard in Batam and is on hire by its charterer for a term program in East Africa. The vessel will load an ROV spread and mobilize across the Indian Ocean to load further subsea equipment for the client in Durban in this month.

“The vessel has a 50-ton subsea crane with active heave compensation for service in water depths of up to 3,000 m,” said Venkatraman Sheshashayee, Jaya CEO. “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.

“In order to save our clients mobilization time and cost, the vessel was delivered fully equipped with a mezzanine deck for the ROV spread, additional cables, survey area on the bridge and additional satellite broadband internet connection in place. Similar to her sister ship,Jaya Valour, there is a gym and an internet café on board for crew.”

Jaya Vigilant has accommodation for 60 people and complies with the SPS Code 2008. She has 1,000 sq m (10,964 sq ft) of clear deck space and a fast rescue craft, and 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.

Jaya said its next deliveries from Jaya’s Batam yard will be a DP-2 work boat with accommodation for 249 people, and two DP-2 ROV support vessels with 100-ton cranes.
