LIMA 2017: MTC Unveils its Mobile Offshore Base Stations for Royal Malaysian Navy
 
At LIMA 2017, the Langkawi International Maritime And Aerospace Exhibition currently held in Malaysia, local company Marine Technology Company (MTC) unveiled two Mobile Offshore Base Station concepts. The first one is a "self propelled barge" while the other is an "8-point mooring barge".

MTC is proposing these new designs to the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) which has a requirement for such offshore base stations to complement the existing two ones it has in inventory (PL Tun Sharifah Rodziah which is based on a rig and KA Tun Azizan which is actually a large surface vessel).

The existing and future offshore base stations are intended to protect Malaysia's natural ressources in the Eastern Sabah Security Zone.

The Mobile Offshore Base Station "self-propelled barge" variant is constructed from welded steel. It has a length of 62 meters, a beam of 18.60 meters and a draft of just 3 meters.

It is fitted with fully air-conditionned accommodatons with galley, mess room, recreation room, meeting room, prayer room and control room. The base is designed to accommodate 40 sailors for 1 month at sea. It is fitted with a slipway to easily launch and recover a CB90 type boat. It is also fitted with a large helicopter pad placed forward.

While the Mobile Offshore Base Station "8-point mooring barge" variant shares most of the specifications with the "self-prolled barge" variant, its characteristics differ as follows: It has a length of 44.80 meters, a beam of 17.20 meters and a draft of just 1.5 meters.

An MTC representative at LIMA explained that either variant may be built in less than 1 year.
