250th aluminium vessel delivered
Built by Piriou Vietnam to a well-proven Piriou design, the FPSV ‘Jana 21’ will operate in the Arabian Gulf and is one of a dozen vessels of this type in operation in the offshore oil industry. ‘Jana 21’ joins two Piriou 41m FPSVs, ‘Jana 17’ and ‘Jana 18’, delivered in 2017.
This latest vessel has a number of modifications to meet the new owner’s specifications, including a new waterjet propulsion system to meet a requirement for increased speed and manoeuvrability combined with a Class 2 dynamic positioning system.
PIRIOU group CEO.Vincent Faujour said, “We are glad that despite the complicated situation with Covid-19 pandemic lockdowns everywhere, we still managed to deliver this complex vessel in time. We take pride in being always up to our clients’ expectations, even during such unprecedented times.”
“Our PIRIOU Vietnam team has proven yet again their capabilities and commitment, and hopefully this will translate into JANA Marine advantage. We value our relationship with JANA Marine. The loyalty of this customer confirms our ability to answer their operational requirements with the supply of our vessels and after sales services.”
Jana Marine C.E.O. Mohammed AlSubaie said, “Despite our concerns of delays because of the Covid-19 lockdowns, and international travel restrictions, we are appreciative of PIRIOU’s efforts in meeting the committed deadline.”
“This vessel has exceeded our expectations in speed and performance wise during sea trials, this reaffirms our trust in PIRIOU’s capabilities and the high levels of quality and reliability of their products. We are confident that the addition of this vessel to our fleet will further enhance our reputation as one of the best marine service providers in the region and beyond, and we look forward to the next opportunity to work together again in the future.”
