Nigeria-based Homeland Integrated Offshore Services LTD (Homeland IOS) said it has placed an order with the Singaporean Penguin Shipyard for several Flex Fighter security/crew vessels for delivery in December 2019.

The 40-meter vessels are among the first of Penguin Shipyard's latest generation, fitted with an all-round wheelhouse ballistic protection, machine gun mounts and gunner shields forward and aft. The vessels ave cabins and amenities for up to 12 security personnel.

To fulfill its role as a crew boat, the Flex Fighter also comes with reclining seats for 42 passengers and a 93-square-meter cargo deck with knuckle boom crane for equipment and components. The vessels also feature heavy-duty/self-cleaning fuel oil purifiers, an external fire-fighting monitor and a FuelTrax Electronic Fuel Management System.

"We continue to invest in state-of-the-art vessels for our fleet so as to maintain our leadership position in servicing Nigeria's offshore oil and gas sector," said Dr. Louis Ekere, Chief Executive Officer & Managing Director of Homeland Integrated Offshore Services Limited. "We work with many of the international oil companies (IOCs) operating actively in the Gulf of Guinea and these new additions will support them in achieving their strategic global objectives.

"This is the first time that we have purchased vessels from Penguin Shipyard and we chose them on this occasion based on their proven record of reliability in the building and delivery of several such vessels to Nigeria and other countries.

"The delivery of these Flex Fighters will significantly strengthen Homeland's fleet and create additional channels of diversification to support the ever-evolving needs of our existing and prospective clients."
