Harkand Harmony was built by ASL Marine Holdings.
The latest ROV support vessel to service the Asia Pacific region’s oil and gas industry has been launched in Singapore. Around 100 guests attended the naming ceremony of Harkand Harmony at Keppel Marina.
Sophie Mottais-Trouve, the wife of Harkand’s Vice President of Commercial and Strategy Olivier Trouve, opened the festivities by officially naming the 65m-long vessel.
Harkand Harmony’s naming follows two major milestones for the group. The vessel was secured on a three-year charter that will see Harkand extend its inspection, maintenance & repair (IMR) services in the growing Asia Pacific region.
The vessel, built by ASL Marine Holdings at Batam near Singapore, will be fitted with a Comanche work-class ROV and a complete survey spread. Able to accommodate 60 crew, the vessel has a 580m² main deck, a Kongsberg DP2 system, 20 tonne man-riding knuckleboom crane and a moonpool.
