New offshore and deck crane contracts for TTS Group
TTS Group ASA has, through its Business Unit Offshore, entered into three new agreements for delivery of offshore and deck cranes with a total order value of approx. 105 MNOK, the Group said in a press release.
The main contract is with Triyards Marine Services Pte Ltd. in Singapore for delivery of two active heavy compensated (AHC) subsea cranes for two vessels contracted by an Indian owner. The deliveries will take place 2nd and 3rd quarter 2016.
The two other contracts are for shipyards respectively in Argentina and Norway. The Argentinian yard has ordered three deck cranes for a product carrier. Delivery will be in approx. 10 months. For the Norwegian shipyard Kleven Verft TTS will deliver deck cranes for six offshore vessels to be built for Maersk. The delivery time will be 12-16 months.
TTS has reinforced its position within the midsize crane segments.
Although the offshore market is in a very vulnerable position, we are actively working on segments showing growth. One is Offshore Support and Supply Vessels (OSV and PSV), where there is a need for AHC technology on medium sized cranes with 80-150 tonnes lifting capacity. The order for Triyards is a result of this, says Björn Anderson, CEO of TTS Group ASA.
