Bangkok--26 Sep--Unithai Shipyard

Unithai Shipyard has been awarded a contract from Grande Cote Operations SA – a subsidiary of Mineral Deposit Ltd, a company in Australia which operates mining fields in various countries – to build a cutter dredge that will be operated in zircon mining in Senegal, West Africa. The contract signing took place at the Unithai Shipyard on August 31.

The contract is for the construction of a cutter dredge – 42 metres long, 16 metres wide and 2.5 metres high – as well as installing the equipment for pump-feed capacity of 7,000 tonnes per hour and complete commissioning before delivery by the third quarter of 2012.

Earning this contract marks another milestone for Unithai Shipyard, which continues to be recognised by clients worldwide for its outstanding abilities.

Unithai Shipyard earlier earned contracts from Wartsila Finland Oy to build two floating power plants. The first was completed and delivered last year, and the second will be delivered in the fourth quarter of this year.
