It said on Friday the orders were for five anchor handling tug supply ships, a work barge that would be able to accommodate 300 men, a 85-metre subsea support/maintenance vessel maintenance vessel.
Coastal Contracts said of the seven OSVs, five vessels were sold to new customers from Southeast Asia and Africa, whereas two vessels were sold to regular customers.
