PRANCING LIONS, clashing cymbals and free-flowing champagne marked a ceremony on Friday night at Keppel Bay Marina where Otto Marine handed over the GO Rigel vessel to Go Marine.

The 8,000bhp AHTS vessel was sold for US$24.0 million, and will be deployed in the Bass Strait in Australia for a contract supporting the Origin Yolla Field Development.

It is a dynamically positioned class 2 AHTS equipped with Niigata engine that is capable of delivering 120T bollard pull.

Go Marine continues to be a highly valued client of Otto Marine, a Singapore-listed company which specialises in building complex offshore support  vessels, ship chartering and offers specialised offshore services.

Go Marine has ordered two more newbuilds - 12,000bhp AHTS worth US$38.5 million each - from Otto Marine.

These two units are expected to be delivered in 3Q2012 and 1Q2013 respectively.

 The 12,000bhp AHTS vessels, 78.2m x 18.5m, are equipped with the latest technology and equipment, and its powerful engines are capable of delivering 150T bollard pull.

Below are photos taken by Sim Kih during the vessel naming and handover ceremony.
