Singmarine Launches Ore Carrier

The ore carrier, Kamora, was recently launched at the Benoi Road facility of Singmarine Dockyard & Engineering Pte Ltd, a subsidiary of Singmarine Industries Limited.

The contract, worth about $5.4 million, was awarded by Freeport Indonesia, Inc., a subsidiary of Freeport McMoRan Copper & Gold.

Upon launching, the vessel was christened by Jean Mealey, wife of George Mealey, president and CEO of Freeport McMoRan Copper & Gold.

The 233-foot long Kamora is designed to carry about 2,559 tons of copper concentrate. The Kamora is being built to Det norske Veritas requirements as well as with the statutory regulations of Panama.

When completed, the vessel will be used to transship the product to larger bulk carriers in deep waters.

The vessel's homeport will be Irian Jaya, Indonesia.

Singmarine Dockyard also has three other ships under construction for owners in the U.S., Abu Dhabi and Thailand.
