Mermaid Endurer Impresses Shareholders in Singapore

Mermaid Maritime Public Company Limited (“Mermaid”) is pleased to advise that it hosted visits by some of its shareholders and interested investors to the Mermaid Endurer in Singapore last week. The said vessel is briefly in Singapore for scheduled maintenance and minor repairs after demobilizing from a successful subsea campaign in China and is en-route to the North Sea for her next assignment. Feedback from those who visited the vessel were positive as follows:

“We, shareholders of Mermaid Maritime, listed company in Singapore would like to Thank You for your assistance in arranging the visit to Endurer. Mr. Matt Drewry and his team members did a very good job in showing us around and explaining how the ship functions. We learnt how the divers have to stay in their "hotels" and get acclimatize before their dives. It was indeed a very interesting and educational tour. THANK YOU !!” – Michael Tan, Peter Yeo, Tan See Wah, Loh Chee Tat and Goh Aik Tshin.

“We and our clients had a fantastic visit on board your vessel. Both Martin, the captain, and Lee were most informative, extremely hospitable and thoroughly professional. Thank you very much for your help in organizing the visit.” –JP Morgan Securities.

The Mermaid Endurer is a purpose-built DNV classed DP2 Dive Support Vessel with diesel-electric propulsion and was delivered to Mermaid in May 2010. The vessel features a fully built-in and classed 18-man single bell saturation diving system rated to 300 meters water depth, including a self-propelled hyperbaric lifeboat, and is designed for working in harsh environmental conditions.

A 100 ton active heave-compensated knuckle-boom crane enables the vessel to perform light construction operations.

DNV class notation includes Clean Design (strict environmental standards) and Comfort Class (onboard levels of noise and vibration in compliance with international standards). The vessel is equipped with numerous offices, a conference room, a hospital, a gymnasium, recreation rooms, an internet lounge, a cinema and a sauna. Accommodation comprises 86 berths, and all cabins have en-suite bathrooms.
