Malaysia completes twins

With a booming offshore oil industry on its doorstep, the southeast Asian nation of Malaysia is seeing a boom among its shipbuilders, particularly those specialising in offshore vessel construction. One of these is the Shin Yang Shipyard located at Miri in Sarawak, Malaysia on the island of Borneo.

The yard has recently delivered the sisterships Anis and Alya using a design drawn up by Wärtsilä Ship Design of Singapore. Both vessels can accommodate 199 people, while tankage has been provided for 800m3 of fuel and 900m3 of water.

The ABS-classed vessels have electric drive bow thrusters as well as 45-ton deck pedestal-mounted deck cranes. Propulsion is by two Cummins QSK60M engines, each delivering 2,200hp at 1,800rpm, turning four-blade 2000-m/m fixed-pitch propellers. JS
