It is indeed a pleasure to know that Colombo Dockyard Plc Ltd (Colombo Dockyard) has completed 20 years of association with Onomichi Dockyard Company Ltd of Japan.
In the competitive and fast changing world of Offshore Logistics, owning quality, technologically advanced and cost effective assets have been a critical factor in the 7 year journey of Greatship as a quality service provider to our clients. Colombo Dockyard Plc Ltd has played a crucial role in this achievement. Greatship’s association with Colombo Dockyard started in 2006 when we were looking for competent shipyards in Asia for construction of vessels under our new build programme. Our first DP II vessel was delivered to us in January 2008. The association has continued to flourish over the years, resulting in Colombo Dockyard delivering a total of 4 AHTS and 7 ROV Support Vessels, the last being Greatship Ragini delivered a month ago.
During our association with Colombo Dockyard, we found them to be professional, highly quality conscious and they were able to deliver our vessels in accordance to our contract. These vessels continue to provide efficient service to our clients and have thus earned praise and trust for their reliability. We have no doubt that Onomichi Dockyard Company Limited’s collaboration with Colombo Dockyard has been responsible for their perseverance to achieve superior quality during construction which is important for vessel owners.
Flexibility to meet owner’s needs is another positive trait that we experienced in Colombo Dockyard’s approach to vessel building. In offshore business some of the charters have additional demands to enhance vessel’s capability. We found Colombo Dockyard to be capable and accommodating in meeting these changing requirements.
We wish Colombo Dockyard and Onomichi Dockyard Company’s association the very best and hope they will continue to build quality vessels as one of the better yards in the sub-continent.
