OOS International Group has signed a fixed contract with China Merchant Industry Holdings for the engineering and construction of two newbuild semi-submersible crane vessels (SSCV).
The Dutch company will name the two new vessels OOS Serooskerke and OOS Walcheren.
“The achievement of this contract with CMIH shipyard will provide the end-client with a bespoke solution for the oil & gas/wind market, resulting in significant cost reductions. Today’s oil & gas economics does not hold us back. The fact that we decided to continue with our plans by introducing niche products to the oil & gas/wind Industry in the current market situation, shows our strong long-term commitment, as well our trust in this great novel concept” said Leon Overdulve, founder and owner of OOS International Group.
The vessels are expected to be completed in the second quarter and third quarter of 2019.
