Six for a First! Tractors Singapore’s first deal as authorized Cat® Propulsion dealer.
Tractors Singapore Limited (TSL), an authorised Cat Dealer (for Singapore, Maldives and Christmas Island-Indian Ocean) with the honour of being appointed (with sister company –The China Engineers, Ltd) as the first Cat Dealer in the world to distribute the complete range of Cat Propulsion products (Marine Thruster Transverse, Remote Controls, Tug Standard Package, Marine Propulsion Propeller, Marine Thruster Azimuth and Twin Fin) in 2016, was proud to have clinched its first deal with a longstanding valued customer, PACC Offshore Services Holdings Ltd (POSH), for six of its ABS class 64m (60 TBP) shallow draft Anchor Handling Tug Supply and Safety (AHTSS) vessels.
TSL Power Systems’ sales and service task force, along with Cat Propulsion experts, collaborated on this project and won over POSH’s main design and procurement teams based in Singapore after numerous sessions involving project management, design and technicalengineering drawings to address critical customer requirements.
Deliveries were made within the expected scheduled timeline to PaxOcean Group, POSH’s sister company, at its shipyard located at Zhuhai, China. Being present during the installation and commissioning of the six vessels with the Cat Propulsion experts afforded our service engineers valuable firsthand experience.
Along with Cat’s main propulsion systems (consisting of Cat 3516C main engines, gearboxes, shaft alternators, shafting sets, MPP 690 Controllable Pitch Propellers and Spare Properly Blades, for Port and Starboard), each vessel is also powered by Cat C18 main gensets plus a Cat C4.4 for its emergency genset.
“Cat’s propulsion systems provides us with the reliability that our vessels require for safe and efficient operations. Furthermore, they place POSH at the forefront of technology, in line with our constant drive to innovate and adapt to the industry’s evolving needs,” said POSH. “We would like to express our sincere gratitude to TSL – the authorised Cat dealer for Singapore, Maldives and Christmas Island-Indian Ocean - for their professionalism and service excellence throughout this process.”
“With customer focus being a top priority, POSH placed a large emphasis on the timely delivery of vessels and safety excellence. TSL was able to fulfil these demands and we are proud to have worked with a leading offshore marine services provider with an extensive track record and over 60 years of operating experience. We are pleased with the outcome of this project and look forward to more collaborations in the future,” said TSL.
TSL is proud to have had a hand in the completion of POSH’s six vessels christened POSH Springbok, POSH Steenbok, POSH Gemsbok, POSH Okapi, POSH Oribi and POSH Impala.
