JUB Pacific has bolstered its footprint in the liftboat arena with the acquisition of the 2010-built Caracal Pioneer.

The Singapore-based company said the unit, picked up for an undisclosed sum, would be renamed JUB Pioneer.

The 57-m-long vessel, which has been under JUB Pacific’s UAE-based management arm GPK Marine Management Services, is one of the largest liftboats in Africa and fit to service major players in the oil and gas sector within the region.

“The integration of the Caracal Pioneer into our owned fleet not only enhances our operational capabilities but also reflects our steadfast dedication to becoming the preferred partner for oil majors seeking reliable and efficient maritime solutions in the region,” the company said in a statement.

Following the acquisition, the company established in 2018 will have a fleet of 18 owned and managed liftboats.
