A.M.S. Workboats Secured Long Term Charter Contracts in Two Major Projects in WA


A.M.S. Tugs & Barges’ 28m workboats – A.M.S. SHINE and A.M.S. SWISSCO have recently entered into charter agreement with two major projects in WA, the Wheatstone LNG Project and Roy Hill Iron Ore Project.

As part of the Chevron’s Wheatstone project requirements, A.M.S. operations team had undergone countless hours of work on A.M.S. SHINE to comply her with the OVID (Offshore Vessel Inspection Database) requirements. A specifically designed and fabricated Hydraulic Self Lifting 35T SWL Fork Towing Pin unit was also installed on A.M.S. SHINE to suit the anchor handling operations of the project.

Due to the successful performance and high appraisal received on A.M.S. SHINE, this has increased the demand of her sister vessel A.M.S. SWISSCO in the North West Shelf. Not long after signing off the contract for A.M.S. SHINE in November 2013, A.M.S. SWISSCO also won her first charter contract early this month (December). A.M.S. SWISSCO will assist in the Roy Hill Iron Ore Project at Port Hedland for wharf construction and barge support. As of December 2013, both vessels have been mobilised to their respective project location.

The team at A.M.S. Tugs & Barges always values feedback from clients and work towards providing a continued level of excellence in service by improving various aspects of the fleet. 2013 has been a milestone for A.M.S. and we look forward to achieving even greater results in the following years.
