MUMBAI, India – Larsen & Toubro Shipbuilding has won orders for six offshore vessels from Halul Offshore Services Co. W.L.L., Qatar.

The $154-million contract covers design, construction, trials, and commissioning of four platform supply vessels (PSVs) and two anchor handling towing, supply, and standby vessels (AHTSSVs) with 150-metric ton (165-ton) bollard pull.

All the vessels will be equipped with DP-2 dynamic positioning with equipment for fire-fighting, emergency response, rescue and standby, offshore supply, oil recovery, and other duties.
