VANTAA, Finland – Navis Engineering has completed work on its latest project involving Singaporean offshore specialist Miclyn Express Offshore (MEO), following the commissioning of the DP-2 system onboard the Resolution, a 70-m (230-ft) ROV and diving support vessel.
After successful sea trials and a christening ceremony at the Keppel Bay Marina in Singapore, the vessel has departed for Indonesia, on a three-year charter to Seascape Surveys.
The Seascape charter agreement called for modifications to Resolution, with the newbuild lengthened by 6 m (20 ft) during construction at the MEO Batam Shipyard. Enhancements included a mezzanine deck extension and installation of a crane, two ROV generators, a moon pool, an air compressor, A-frame, and additional PRS (taut wire and HPR).
This latest project reflects the strategic investment made by Navis in establishing operations in Singapore two years ago. The company’s Singapore office has also taken responsibility for overseeing relations with shipbuilders throughout southeast Asia, with current projects including work in Vietnam.
