During last decade SeaQuest progressively augmented its exposure towards elitist markets and special projects involving innovative cargo transporting technology, ECO-Design, Energy Saving development studies, finally stepping into the Naval Support ships construction projects and working closely with Naval Authorities and Ministry of Defense of various esteemed countries for their prestigious shipbuilding projects in Far East
SeaQuest has been standing at the forefront on three different Naval Support ships new building programs, leading the design appraisal, Plan Approval, Risk Analysis/Assessment and Construction Supervision of six ships, four for the UK Ministry of Defence, one for the Norwegian Defence Material Agency and one for the New Zealand Defence Force, the latter completed in June 2020, for which SeaQuest was nominated as the “Excellent Company of the Year 2020” by the NZ DIAC (Defence Industry Advisory Council).
All three projects featured different conceptual design and military objectives, implementing state-of-the-art technology with advanced automation and integrated control systems for the seamless support of global military missions and strategical deterrence.The ships were conceived for the support of the military activities, providing logistic assistance, fuel, water, armament and sustainment to the warships on war scenes or during mass casualty situations, even in harsh environmental conditions.
Built to accommodate hundreds of persons, equipped with restaurants, receptive and recreational rooms, large hospital facility with core and ward areas, provided with a completely automated propulsion system operating in different configurations for defence redundancy, controlled by Integrated Platform Management Systems consisting of more than 10-12 thousands I/Os, abeam replenishment at sea (RAS) stations for diesel oil, aviation fuel, fresh water and solid/non-bulk cargo (e.g. emergency supplies, provisions and ammunitions), provided with a flight deck and helicopter hangar for vertical replenishment at sea, hundreds of independent compartments as well as various combat, defence and deterring systems.
Each project required several million manhours with over 8,000 inspections carried out per vessel along with numerous Sea Trials, culminating in successful deliveries with spotless Safety records.
