(MENAFN - Arab News) The Eastern Province-based Mohammad Al-Mojil Group (MMG) announced yesterday that in a follow up to its announcement in December 2011, the delivery of its three state-of-the-art vessels for its fleet in the Marine Services Division has been completed.
Out of the three vessels, two are from future generation with a length of 54 meters. The third one is a crew vessel, which has developed and operational capabilities and a capacity that could hold up to 70 passengers. All the three vessels after procuring the required permissions have become operational to serve Saudi Aramco to provide marine support services to its floating oil and gas platforms as per the five-year contract MMG has signed with Saudi Aramco in December 2011.
According to MMG President and CEO Ebrahim Zadeh, the addition of these three vessels in the fleet is a major step forward in executing MMG plans to improvise and enhance its marine operations by upgrading its fleet in order to meet the expected increase in demand in the shipping and marine sector. He hoped that upgrading of its fleet will strengthen the confidence of MMG's clients, particularly Saudi Aramco. Zadeh reiterated MMG's commitment to continuously improve its marine services in order to exceed the demands of the clients with better quality and high safety standards.
