Dockwise subsidiary takes delivery of Triumph

December 16 - Following the delivery of the Treasure in June 2008, and following the successful completion of submergence tests and sea trials, the Triumph has now joined Dockwise Transport's fleet on schedule.

Dockwise Transport, a wholly owned subsidiary of Dockwise Ltd anticipates that the remaining converted tanker - the Trustee - will be delivered at the end of this month.


With the addition of six vessels to its fleet, Dockwise claims that it will be able to optimise strategic deployment of its 22-vessel fleet to best serve the various markets.


Triumph is designed to transport complex, high-value cargo such as jack- up drilling units; has a carrying capacity in excess of 35,000 tonnes and will load its first cargo in Singapore.


This vessel was converted at the COSCO shipyard at Guangzhou, China. During the conversion, the entire midship section was replaced.

The conversion of the Triumph forms part of Dockwise's USD220 million capital expenditure programme for 2008.
