Iran firm to build utility vessels for oil platforms

TEHRAN, September 26, 2017

Iran’s Arvandan Shipbuilding Company plans to construct utility vessels for oil platforms for the first time, the company's managing director was quoted as saying in a media report.

The firm is in talks with Iranian Offshore Oil Company (IOOC) on the construction of the utility vessels, Hossein Qorbani was quoted in an Iran Daily report.

IOOC is working on most of Iran's oil platforms, Qorbani said, noting that since about two years ago, the company has sought to employ domestic utility vessels for oil platforms rather than hiring them from foreign companies.

Arvandan Shipbuilding has proposed to build some of the utility vessels needed by the IOOC, he added.
