Jaya takes delivery of VigilantVessel & ROV News // October 2, 2013
Jaya Holdings Limited has taken delivery of its second multipurpose platform supply vessel (MPSV), Jaya Vigilant. The vessel sailed from Jaya’s shipyard in Batam at the end of September and was immediately on hire to its charterer for a term programme in East Africa.
The vessel will load an ROV spread and mobilise across the Indian Ocean to load subsea equipment for the client in Durban in October.
The vessel has a 50 tonne subsea crane with active heave compensation for service in water depths of up to 3,000m. Jaya has installed two HiPAP ultra short base line transponders, in addition to DGPS and Cyscan systems.
"In order to save our client's mobilisation time and cost, the vessel was delivered fully equipped with a mezzanine deck for the ROV spread, additional cables, survey area on the bridge and additional satellite broadband internet connection in place," said Jaya.
Jaya Vigilant has accommodation for 60 people on board and is fully compliant with the SPS Code 2008. The vessel has a 1,000m2 deck, fast rescue craft, FiFi 1 for emergency response and full underdeck cargo capacities for mud, bulk, brine and marine gas oil.
Jaya has added additional power supplies on deck to support seabed coring, ROV and hydrographic survey spread requirements, and the vessel has its own water maker to increase autonomy.
