Shipbuilder Austal announced on Friday that it delivered an 80-metre catamaran made at its Philippines shipyard to client SNC Arenti.
The Henderson, WA-based company said that it delivered the vessel ahead of the second quarter FY2014 schedule. Building took place at the shipyard in Cebu that Austal acquired in November 2011.
“I am proud that Austal’s team in the Philippines has been able to deliver this ferry to our repeat customer, despite the challenges faced, including ensuring the safety of the vessel, shipyard, and our staff during Typhoon Haiyan,” said CEO Andrew Bellamy in a statement.
“We are continuing to progress with construction of four wind farm vessels at the Philippines shipyard and are pursuing ongoing opportunities in commercial vessels and the wind farm vessel market.”
