On 10th Feb 2015, Mr Hasan Bunain (K.O.C Deputy CEO), Mr Fadhel Boresle (K.O.C Marine Operations Manager) and Mr Jamal Abki (General Manager of Grandweld Shipyards) inaugurated the naming ceremony of the third Crane Work Boat KOC-Al JOUN at Grandweld Shipyards in Dubai. KOC-Al JOUN is the third in a series of crane work Boats that Grandweld is building for KOC. The first two vessels, KOC Al-KOUT and KOC Al-SOUR, were successfully delivered by Grandweld in December and January respectively.

K.O.C will use the Crane Work Boat for unrestricted duties and for tasks such as lifting and moving heavy equipment, oil-pollution control, SPM hose handling, FO/FW supply to remote areas, and other similar duties. This vessel is powered by 2 x 1068KW medium-speed main engines driving C.P.P. Azimuthing Stern Thrusters. The engines are supported by a Condition Based Monitoring System to monitor the engine and propulsion system through satellite. The vessel is also equipped with an offshore crane, capable of lifting 20 tons at a 10-meter radius, and a bow thruster that enhances the vessel’s manoeuvrability.

In the event, Mr Hasan Bunain attributed the successful delivery of KOC-Al JOUN to the excellent cooperation, support and coordination between the teams of K.O.C and Grandweld Shipyards..
