Jaya Holdings takes delivery of its 2nd MPSV
Jaya Vigilant has been shipped to East Africa.
Jaya Holdings has taken on-time delivery of its second new Multi-Purpose Platform Supply Vessel (MPSV), Jaya Vigilant. She sailed from Jaya’s shipyard in Batam yesterday and was immediately on hire by its charterer for a term programme in East Africa. The vessel will load a Remotely Operated Vessel (ROV) spread and mobilise across the Indian Ocean to load further subsea equipment for the client in Durban in October.
“Jaya Vigilant exemplifies the increasingly sophisticated vessels which Jaya’s Batam shipyard is able to build and customise on time and within budget,” commented Jaya Holdings’ CEO Venkatraman Sheshashayee.
“The vessel has a 50 tonne subsea crane with active heave compensation for service in water depths of up to 3,000 metres. We have installed two HiPAP ultra short base line transponders to give very accurate station keeping for subsea work, in addition to the standard DGPS and Cyscan systems on board.
“In order to save our clients mobilisation time and cost, the vessel was delivered fully equipped with a mezzanine deck for the ROV spread, additional cables, survey area on the bridge and additional satellite broadband internet connection in place.
Similar to her sister ship, Jaya Valour, there is a gym and an internet café on board for crew”. Jaya Vigilant has accommodation for 60 people on board and is fully compliant with the SPS Code 2008. She has 1,000 square metres of clear deck space, a modern fast rescue craft, FiFi One for emergency response and full under deck cargo capacities for mud, bulk, brine and marine gas oil. Jaya has added additional power supplies on deck to support the seabed coring, ROV and hydro-graphic survey spread requirements, and the vessel has its own water maker to increase autonomy.
The next deliveries from Jaya’s Batam yard will be a DP2 work boat with accommodation for 249 people, and two DP2 ROV support vessels with 100 tonne cranes.
