Turkish group Karadeniz Holding has added an EMAS Offshore vessel to its fleet to support its Powership operations.

The owner confirmed it has acquired the 220-bp anchor-handler Lewek Trogon (built 2008) for an undisclosed price.

VesselsValue rates the previously laid-up ship as worth $6.5m.

A Karadeniz spokesperson said the vessel would be used for towing operations and as a support vessel for Powerships during its offshore operations.

Powerships are barges or vessels with fully-integrated mounted floating power plants that supply electricity to shore communites.

The group has a mixed fleet of 38 ships, including anchor-handlers and a platform supply vessel (PSV).

Singapore's EMAS has been restructuring after being hit by the offshore downturn.
