Mark Thomas, director of KT Maritime Services Australia, said this major contract for the design, construction and operation of the three 42m-long, 100-tonne bollard-pull ISVs for the Prelude site 475km north-north east of Broome was a major milestone for the company.
“Over the past six months, Shell and KT Maritime’s project teams have been tasked with optimising the ISVs as a world first concept. Now this process has been successfully completed, we are excited to commence the new build construction phase of the project.”
KT Maritime is a joint venture partnership of Kotug International BV and Teekay Shipping Australia Pty Ltd, which was formed in 2012.
The ISVs will be tasked with servicing Prelude’s LNG, LPG and condensate export activities, as well as forming an integral part of the facility’s emergency response and evacuation requirements.
The three ISVs will be powered by the Rotortug® technology, pioneered by Kotug, featuring three separate azimuth propulsion units to provide improved vessel safety, power, efficiency and manoeuvrability.

A steel-cutting ceremony for the first of three infield support vessels (ISVs), under construction for Perth-based KT Maritime Services Australia Pty Ltd to support Shell’s Prelude FLNG project, was recently held at the vessels’ building yard in Singapore, ASL Shipyard Pte Ltd.
