Ship Owning

Ship owning as a core business of the PCL Group started with the acquisition of the first ship in 1977. Our move to greater diversification in this area of business during the last decade has led us to own a varied fleet of vessel types ranging from bulk carriers, product tankers to cellular container and multi-purpose break bulk vessels. With our recent entry into the offshore services sector, we now also own Anchor Handling Tugs(AHTs), Platform Support Vessels(PSVs), Offshore Support Vessels(OSVs) and barges and transloaders. Our constant efforts at maintaining a modern and efficient fleet necessitates that we engage ourselves in a continuing new building program.

We have formed joint venture whenever there are synergies. Strategic alliances with our customers are explored regularly as major cargo interests prefer to work with major shipowners in order to minimise risks vis a vis contracting with single vessel or small owners where the risks are larger. As a large ship owning entity, we offer cargo interests increased flexibility.
