This is the ENDEAVOUR, which now has emerged as the world’s largest vessel of her type. It is a fully pneumatic self discharge cement carrier.
It spans 170 metres long and is of 30,000 dwt, and was built in one of the Batam shipyards of Drydocks World – Southeast Asia (DDW-SEA).
Another notable thing is this vessel was one of the largest vessels to be built at Drydocks’ designated volume, shipbuilding facility - the Nanindah shipyard.
Designed by Shiptech Pte. Ltd, the vessel ENDEAVOUR was delivered to Endeavor S.N.C., a subsidiary of SETAF SAGET of France, a company of the Bourbon Group.
In its media release today (Aug 20), Drydocks World-Southeast Asia announced the delivery of four other vessels - GREATSHIP AHALYA, MERMAID VISION and ARK DARTMOOR from its Nanindah yard and ARMADA TUAH 104 from its Pertama yard, also in Batam.
Mr. Denis Welch, CEO of DDW-SEA, the Southeast Asian subsidiary of Drydocks World, said, “The maritime industry is currently facing extraordinarily challenging times. However, we believe the resilient players will emerge and weather the crisis.
" At DDW-SEA, we continue to meet our clients’ expectations, having delivered 11 vessels of differing types and sizes since the beginning of the year – which once again prove our capabilities as an integrated maritime solutions provider in the Southeast Asia region. This could not be made possible without the commitment and contribution of our dedicated teams at all our yards.”
The 80 tons bollard pull GREATSHIP AHALYA, 105 tons bollard pull MERMAID VISION, 90 tons bollard pull ARK DARTMOOR and 150 tons bollard pull ARMADA TUAH 104 are all Anchor Handling Tug/Supply (AHTS) vessels, built to meet the requirements of the American Bureau of Shipping.
