The Kuwait Oil Tanker Company (KOTC) has awarded GAC Fujairah a contract to provide ship supply services, spare parts and other husbandry services to its vessels arriving in Fujairah, Khor Fakkan and Singapore anchorages. Under the contract, the GAC team is set to handle approximately 450 jobs a year, a figure which is likely to grow as the KOTC fleet expands.
GAC Fujairah worked with the Middle East Regional Office in Dubai and GAC Singapore to secure the deal.
This is the third time GAC Fujairah has been appointed by KOTC to provide husbandry services to its vessels. The company’s proven track record was a key factor.
Capt. Johan Thuresson, General Manager – Shipping Services for GAC Fujairah & Dubai, says:
“Effective husbandry ensures efficient vessel turnaround, which in turn minimises the time spent in port. GAC Fujairah’s husbandry services have time and again generated tangible time and cost savings for our clients like KOTC. Our goal is to ensure our teams deliver such efficiency gains on a continuous basis.”
