Dubai, May 8 – Eversendai Offshore adds another feather to its cap with the load- out of their first liftboat named ARYAN on April 27, 2017. The Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Commissioning (EPCC) company has been showing positive trends despite being in the sluggish Oil and Gas market, winning several other Oil and Gas related projects.
The load-out of the ARYAN is a significant milestone for the company that has ventured into building liftboats as part of its business diversification.
Eversendai Offshore was established in 2010 as a wholly owned subsidiary of the reputable Eversendai Group from Malaysia.
“The load out of ARYAN today marks an important milestone for Eversendai Offshore. It goes to prove that the business diversification plan that the Company and Eversendai Group has taken is on the correct path,” said Narish Nathan, CEO of Eversendai Offshore.
“We are also pleased to note that the building of the liftboats in our Ras Al Khaimah facility has achieved commendable a Health, Safety and Environment record with no injury downtime during the 3 million plus hours of work put into this project and that of the upcoming second liftboat. This was only possible with the experienced and well-managed team Eversendai Offshore has,” he said.
The Company was commissioned to build 2 liftboats by Vahana Offshore, a global operator and service provider for offshore works. “We commissioned Eversendai Offshore to complete these 2 liftboats due to their good track record and the Eversendai Group’s reputation in delivering high-quality end products,” said Tan Sri A K Nathan, Group Managing Director of Vahana Holdings’ Group of Companies.
“We are glad to be in a working partnership with the young, innovative and energetic team behind Eversendai Offshore,” he further said.
The liftboat ARYAN is targeted to be fully released to Vahana Offshore in the third quarter of 2017. Narish Nathan notes that building 2 of these liftboats in their Ras Al Khaimah yard has given his team an in-depth experience and technical know-how which are very important for similar future projects.
“This is the maiden voyage into building liftboats for us and we are particularly proud of it because we are the first organisation in the industry within the region to complete the detailed design and engineering for liftboats, which are also known as self-propelled jack-ups. This accomplishment highlights our significance in innovating, excelling and sustaining in new frontiers,” he concluded.
