TOS to lend a hand in deliveries of nine PSVs to Abu Dhabi
Transport & Offshore Services (TOS), a service provider for the maritime and energy sector, has been awarded a contract to deliver nine platform supply vessels (PSVs) for one client.
“Signing a contract for nine state-of-the-art hybrid Platform Supply Vessels is even for TOS a major milestone,” says Rolf Kievits, Sales Manager Ship Delivery at TOS.
In 2013, Esnaad, the operating company of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), ordered ten PSVs from the Dutch Shipyard De Hoop. The shipyard delivered the first vessel, Esnaad 221, in 2015 and TOS assisted the shipyard in the delivery.
After the delivery of Esnaad 221, TOS took the project of assisting the shipyard with the mobilization voyage of another nine PSVs. In total, TOS will be assisting with ten deliveries, which will be executed until the first quarter of 2017.
Like the Esnaad 221, all PSVs will be delivered from The Netherlands to their homeport Abu Dhabi, UAE. The deliveries of Esnaad 222 and Esnaad 223 are already in progress, TOS said.
According to TOS, all PSVs will operate in the offshore oil and gas fields of the United Arab Emirates under the company Esnaad.
The vessels will provide the drilling and production platforms with drilling fluid, fuel, drinking water and project cargo to be transported by the ship on its 475-square-meter working deck.
