An Intermarine heavy lift vessel, the Industrial Dream, recently loaded three patrol vessels at the port of Yokohama, Japan for Jakarta, Indonesia. The patrol vessels some 27 meters long and 5.6 meters wide were donated to Indonesia as part of Japan’s official development assistance (ODA). The patrol boats are being deployed to support anti-piracy activities in the Strait of Malacca. Intermarine’s Commercial Agent in Japan, Nissin Corporation, was instrumental overseeing the loading operations in Yokohama.

The Industrial Dream is one of six new D-Class vessels in the Intermarine services fleet, the delivery of which began in the third quarter of 2006. All vessels in the series are 8,000 deadweight tons and equipped with two 250-ton capacity cranes which can be combined to handle pieces up to 500 tons.
