    Swire Pacific Offshore Operations (Pte) Limited has announced an order for four PSVs.

    The vessels will be built by Universal Shipbuilding Corporation in Japan. The 5,000 dwt PSVs will be classed with DP2 capability and have diesel-electric propulsion systems. The vessels will be delivered progressively from early 2014.

    The order follows on from an order earlier in the year for four sister vessels from the EISA shipyard in Brazil.

    Neil Glenn, Managing Director of Swire Pacific Offshore, said: "We are excited to announce the orders for our H Class series of large PSVs.

    "We see large PSVs as an important market segment moving forward which will meet with the requirements of our key customers."
