    Keppel Singmarine delivers sophisticated anchor handlers

    Vessel & ROV News // July 9, 2004
    Keppel Singmarine (KSM) has delivered two AHTS vessels to Pacific Richfield Marine (PRM).

    Both Pacific Silver and Pacific 28 were awarded to KSM in July 2002 and March 2003 respectively.

    Pacific Silver has a bollard pull of 200 tonnes and 16,000 bhp. Classed under the American Bureau of Shipping as an ice-class towing and offshore support vessel, it is outfitted with fire fighting capabilities, and equipped with dynamic positioning capabilities that enable the vessel to remain in a fixed position whilst work is being carried out.

    Pacific 28 is also classed under the American Bureau of Shipping as a towing and anchor-handling vessel. Similar to Pacific Silver, she is equipped with fire fighting and dynamic positioning capabilities.

    With the delivery of the two vessels, KSM has to date completed a total of five AHTS for PRM. It is expected to deliver two more such vessels in the first quarter of 2005.
