Swiss ship manager Promar is looking to ramp up growth across West Africa’s offshore oil and gas sector after officially launching its latest vessel – the ‘Mamola Reliance’.

The state-of-the-art, 80m Platform Supply Vessel (PSV), built by Damen Shipyards, Galati in Romania, is the first of its kind to be added to its fleet.

Promar chief operating officer, Christophe Mansuy said the high-spec PSV has been developed in line with North Sea standards and benefits from a package of special design features making it particularly attractive for deep water operations.

“We believe the Mamola Reliance possesses world-class qualities which make it highly attractive to the global offshore market. It is the first PSV under Promar’s management and joins our broader fleet of Multi-Purpose Supply Vessels (MPSVs) and Fast Crew Boats (FCBs). It fits the familiar Promar mould having been designed and built to the highest standards expected by oil majors and subcontractors across the world.”

The vessel is prepared for Remote Operated underwater Vehicle (ROV) use and further benefits from an oil-spill detection radar and a tank-heating system. It’s also equipped with FiFi 1 capacity and it is further compliant with Special Purpose Ships (SPS) – meaning it can safely carry additional personnel from port to offshore locations.

Damen Shipyards will deliver the Mamola Reliance’s sister ship, the Mamola Defender in August 2015.
