SINGAPORE -- Keppel Singmarine has delivered the Sea Apache AHTS vessel to Gulfmark Offshore Inc. The vessel will be deployed in Southeast Asia.
"This vessel is delivered well on schedule despite late delivery of key equipment," says Hoe Eng Hock, executive director of Keppel Singmarine. "Her performance during sea trials has also exceeded the design and contractual requirements for bollard pull and speed. We are very glad to play a part towards building Gulfmark's fleet of over 60 offshore support vessels, and its continued expansion into the Southeast Asian offshore market."
Sea Apache is the second of a fleet of six vessels ordered by Gulfmark. The vessel was designed by Marine Technology Development (MTD), the ship R&D arm of Keppel O&M.
