Singapore-based ship and rig building group Triyards Holdings Ltd announced today new orders worth approximately US$100 million comprising of a liftboat and a high speed aluminum craft project.  These contracts follow another $100 million salvo of contracts won last month consisting of two ice-class Multi-Purpose Support Vessels (MPSVs) and a turret fabrication project.

With the new orders posted today, Triyards’ pipeline of newbuilds stands at 11 vessels.

The BH 335 liftboat order announced today is an exclusive design to Triyards by the naval architects at Louisiana-based AK Suda. The lattice unit variant has leg lengths that exceed 100 meters (approximately 335 feet) and can accommodate approximately 146 people.  Triyards says the BH 335 liftboat is primarily targeted for shallow water field services such as work over, coiled tubing, wire-line and platform maintenance operations.

The ABS-classed vessel features a Kongsberg DP-1 system and is powered by four CAT 3512c main engines.

The high speed aluminum craft project was awarded to Strategic Marine, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Triyards and will be delivered to an undisclosed client over a period of four years.
