KUALA LUMPUR: Eversendai Corporation Bhd has secured a RM580mil contract from Vahana Offshore (S) Pte Ltd to construct two units of GustoMSC NG-2500X lift boats.

The lift boats job, awarded via Eversendai's unit Eversendai Offshore RMC FZE will be executed at Eversendai's fabrication yard in RAK Maritime City, Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates.
The group said the lift boat's primary operating capabilities will include a 300 tonnes crane, accommodation for a minimum of 150 personnel and is propelled by its own thrusters to a speed of 5 knots and Dynamic Positioning (DP-2).
Eversendai said it views the award as a leap forward as it seek opportunities to globally expand its operations.
Managing director Tan Sri A K Nathan: "This is a breakthrough contract for Eversendai; one which will see us provide our proven skills in a brand new sector.
"This contract is particularly exciting to us as it supports our strategic decision to establish our offshore oil & gas and marine operations and is in line with our strategy to strengthen our foothold in the Middle East, where we have enjoyed a dominant market share in terms of business opportunities," it said.
He added the lift boats, named Aryan and Arjun, were scheduled for delivery in February and May 2016, respectively.
The contract win marked its second for its oil and gas arm, he added.
"With the latest job, our current orderbook is registered at RM1.68bil," he told reporters at press conference.
