Abeking & Rasmussen builds ship for Indonesia with Fassmer

Caption: A&R and Fassmer build a new hydrographic vessel for Indonesia

A 105 m long hydrographic vessel has been laid down at Abeking & Rasmussen (A&R). It is being built jointly with the neighbouring Fassmer shipyard.

Following the recent successful delivery of two minehunting vessels to the Indonesian Navy, A&R was also commissioned to build the new hydrographic vessel in December last year. As the ship concept is based on a proven design by Fassmer, the project was handled jointly from the outset, the company has now announced. [ds_preview]

While A&R, as a general contractor, is responsible for the customer’s requirements in terms of delivery, regional value creation and technology transfer, Fassmer is responsible for the design and manufacture of the ship, the statement continues.

Abeking ship for research and SAR

The newbuild will carry out various research activities in the world’s largest archipelago state. However, it is also suitable for strengthening SAR capabilities in Indonesian and international waters.

The customer is the Indonesian Institute of Hydrography “Bantu Hidro-Oseanografi” (BHO). The ship will be operated by the Indonesian Navy in future. Delivery is scheduled for December 2025.
