Jaya Scoops US$ 20m Contract in East Africa
Jaya Holdings has signed a two year contract, worth in excess of US$ 20 million, to charter its DP2 platform supply vessel ‘ Jaya Vigilant’ for operation in the Indian Ocean, offshore Mozambique. Jaya Vigilant is currently being upgraded with additional equipment including an internet café for passengers and crew. It is due for delivery end September 2013. The company now has seven new builds remaining in its current shipyard order book. Two of these vessels, due for delivery from Jaya’s yard in Batam, are purpose built ROV ( Remotely Operated Vessel) support. “International oil companies need increasingly versatile offshore support vessels to perform multiple tasks, especially in remote, frontier locations like East Africa, where there is no spot- market and only limited shore support,” said Jaya Holdings’ CEO, Venkatraman Sheshashayee.
