THHE has always been known as a heavy engineering fabricator of repute, delivering quality products and services to its wide range of clientele in the Oil & Gas (O&G) sector. As part of its growth and diversification strategy, THHE is gearing up to offer its expertise to the Marine industry by providing its services to the Shipbuilding and Ship repair (SBSR) sector.
Part of this effort involves transforming the present fabrication yard into a full service shipyard while still retaining its capabilities in delivering O&G projects. Clients from the Marine industry will soon be able to enjoy the level of quality and safety previously only enjoyed by the O&G industry, at competitive rates.
The transformation of the yard involves the installation of a large Slipway able to accommodate ships up to 110 meters long and displacing 3500 tons. The Slipway will be designed to be dual purpose with flush rails so that both ship launchings for shipbuilding and normal docking activities for ship repair can be carried out using the same facility.
The Slipway will be connected to a ship transfer area, which will enable the side transfer and movement of docked ships to three separate repair areas, one of which will be served by heavy lift gantry cranes. This arrangement allows for the yard to be more flexible in conducting its day to day operations, which will provide benefit to our clients through increased work efficiency.
In addition to the Slipway, a Floating Jetty will be installed to cater to ship outfitting and also afloat repairs. The Floating Jetty will offer 200 meters of berthing for ships unaffected by the rise and fall of the tide.
This transformation is an exciting time for us at THHE. We have already secured a shipbuilding license from the Ministry of Finance and is already embarking on our first shipbuilding project in 2017 with the construction of 3 Offshore Patrol Vessels for the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA).
With your support, we believe that we can prove ourselves to be the preferred solution for all your shipbuilding and ship repair needs!
