Singapore’s Strategic Marine has teamed up with Aircat Vessels from France and ESNA from Norway to build three 35-meter surface effect ships (SES) for the offshore oil and gas sector. These high-speed aluminum ships can reach speeds of up to 50 knots and have the ability to transfer passengers and cargo in waves of up to 2.5 meters. Construction is currently ongoing at Strategic Marine’s shipyard in Singapore, with the first vessel sketches being developed nearly eight years ago.

Strategic Marine aims to introduce SES technology to the offshore oil and gas industry after its success in other vessel applications. Aircat Vessels considers these ships as the most high-performing vessels of the future, highlighting their efficiency, speed, and reduced environmental impact. The company’s team is dedicated to bringing these vessels to life and leaving a mark on maritime history through their passion and expertise.

In a bid to offer sustainable solutions, Strategic Marine collaborated with Caterpillar Marine last year to explore new ways to reduce emissions. The shipbuilder also conducted an emissions study to evaluate the potential carbon mitigation benefits of using Sea Forrest’s energy-saving system. This move aligns with the company’s commitment to delivering environmentally friendly solutions to the industry.
