For the first time, TOS has been awarded with a contract of in total nine ship deliveries for one client. The Division Ship Management at TOS has done a great deal of work the last few years. Year after year it has broken record for number of ship deliveries and nautical miles sailed. ‘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.
After the smooth delivery of ESNAAD 221, TOS was honored to take on the project of assisting Shipyard De Hoop with the mobilization voyage of another nine PSV’s. 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.
All PSV’s will operate in the offshore oil and gas fields of the United Arab Emirates under the company ESNAAD, a subsidiary of the ADNOC (Abu Dhabi National Oil Company) Group. 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.
