On Tuesday 20 November 2012, newly built Smit Seraya was launched at Guijing Shipyard in China. The Smit Seraya is one of two new anchor handling tugs (AHT) currently under construction. The vessels are now being finalised to join the fleet in the coming month. Smit Seraya is scheduled for delivery in April 2013 and sister vessel Smit Sentosa will enter service this February.
Both 100 tbp newbuildings are anchor handling tugs, but the 32 ton crane, FiFi 1 unit, and extended accommodation for 24 persons, make that the vessels are very versatile. In addition to deployment for anchor operations, they are also are well-equipped for salvage activities, including emergency response, and the support of pipelay operations and construction barges.
