Sealink in shipyard expansionYard News // October 9, 2008
Sealink International Bhd, a shipbuilder and operator of offshore support vessels (OSVs) based in Miri, Malaysia, says it plans to expand its shipyard for ship repair services in view of the lack of such services in the region.
Sealink chief executive officer and group managing director Sam Yong said the company would spend RM50 million on the expansion, which would take three years to complete.
He said that, as part of the expansion, a slipway would be designed specifically for ship repairs.
“The slipway is expected to be completed by the second half of next year,” Yong told local news sources.
Yong said the company’s shipbuilding capacity would also increase to 25 vessels per annum, from 17, after the expansion of its facilities.
