Singapore-headquartered Miclyn Express Offshore (MEO) reported three of its vessels are working under a firm one-year contract offshore Cambodia
Anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessel Uniwise Advancer and fast crew/utility boats Uni Express 14 and Uni Express 25 have been deployed under a one-year firm contract that contains two six-month options for a permit operator to provide offshore crew change and supply from the port of Sihanoukville.
Thailand-flagged, 2008-built Uni Express 14 has an overall length of 36 m, beam of 7.6 m and depth of 3.3 m, with three Cummins diesel engines, enabling the triple-screw crew boat to obtain a maximum speed of 24 knots.
Built in 2015 at Penguin Shipyard to Flex-40X design, the larger and newer 40-m Uni Express 25 has three Cummins main engines and three propellers as well but can obtain speeds of 28 knots. Uni Express 25 has 100 passenger seats with a clear deck area of 100 m2, deck cargo capacity of 60 tonnes and a Palfinger deck crane with a 0.5 tonne capacity.
Flying the Thai flag, Uniwise Advancer was built in 2003 with two 2,75-bhp Deutz BV9M628 main engines. It has a full suite of deck machinery, including two 10-tonne electro-hydraulic tugger winches, two 5-tonne capstans, double-drum waterfall-type towing and anchor-handling winch, stern roller and one 6-tonne telescopic deck crane.
Meanwhile, MEO’s ROV support vessel Miclyn Enterprise was reflagged from the Panama to Indonesian flag in Q2 2020. Since then, the 2008-built vessel has completed a pipeline touchdown monitoring project for a local subsea survey company in Indonesia prior to undergoing its intermediate docking survey in February 2021.
Dynamic positioning class 2-capable, Miclyn Enterprise has an overall length of 70.25 m, beam of 16 m and depth of 6 m, with accommodation for 64. Two Cat 3516B main engines supply the vessel’s propulsion power, enabling an economic speed of 10 knots and maximum speed of 12 knots.
The BV-classed ROV support vessel is currently working on a post-lay burial inspection project across multiple countries until the end of 2021, reported MEO in a social media post.
