In addition to the previous contract for a multipurpose vessel design, Groot Ship Design received the order to supply two tanker designs and one cement carrier design to KTU (PT Karya Tekhnik Utama) from Indonesia.
All designs are intended for local operation (Indonesia – Singapore – Philippines) and combine the local required simplicity of a vessel with an efficient design.
For equipment and outfitting a selection is made from local (area located) suppliers to allow the shipyard to build vessels for competitive pricing.
The artist impression shows the two designs ready, a 4100 DWT geared multipurpose vessel and a 3500 DWT oil products tanker.
The cooperation between Groot Ship Design and KTU is working and growing into a strong relationship.
Groot Ship Design is pleased to be able to contribute to emerging markets like Indonesia.
