Navis Strengthens Business Activities in Singapore
Navis is delighted to be taking part in Asia Pacific Maritime, widely regarded as the region’s premier industry event. Asia Pacific Maritime brings together leading equipment manufacturers, service providers and maritime technology suppliers showcasing innovation in marine engineering and port technology in support of Singapore’s rapidly expanding maritime and port sector.
The Lion City’s maritime industry employs more than 100,000 people, onshore and at sea. For Navis, Asia Pacific Maritime offers an unrivalled opportunity to build on its strategic investment in Singapore and establishment some two years ago of an office responsible for overseeing relations with shipbuilders throughout South East Asia.
At the end of December 2013 Navis completed a project involving fast-expanding Singaporean offshore specialist Miclyn Express Offshore with the commissioning of the DP2 system onboard the 70m ROV and diving support vessel Resolution. After sea trials and a christening ceremony at the Keppel Bay Marina the vessel was deployed on a three-year charter to Seascape Surveys.
The Seascape charter agreement involved modifications to Resolution, with the newbuild lengthened by 6m during construction at the MEO Batam Shipyard. Enhancements included a mezzanine deck extension and installation of a crane, two ROV generators, a moon pool, air compressor and A-frame, and additional PRS (taut wire and HPR).
The Resolution project followed quickly after Navis sup- plied its DP2 system onboard MEO Ranger, a 65m length platform supply vessel now operating in the Persian Gulf.
Navis is one of the 1,500 international companies from 53 countries participating at Asia Pacific Maritime alongside 45 prominent trade associations. More than 15,000 visitors from 60 countries are attending the event which includes high-level conference and seminar sessions.
