GAC Fujairah has been awarded a husbandry contract by Kuwait Oil Tanker Company (KOTC) to provide ship supply services, spare parts handling and a range of other logistical services to its vessels arriving in Fujairah, Khor Fakkan and the Singapore anchorage. GAC Fujairah worked in close cooperation with the group’s Middle East Regional Office in Dubai and GAC Singapore to secure the deal.
Under the terms of 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.
This is the third time GAC Fujairah has been appointed by KOTC to provide husbandry services to its vessels. GAC’s Capt. Johan Thuresson, general manager – shipping services Fujairah and 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 the Kuwait Oil Tanker Company.”
