STM announced that it has won a Pakistan Ministry of Defence Production (MoDP) contract for a hydrographic/oceanographic study and port design in Pakistan.
STM states: “Within the scope of the project, the detail design of the port is planned to be done by STM, including hydrographic / oceanographic survey and geological and geotechnical survey studies to meet the needs of the Pakistan Navy.”
STM is one of the Pakistan Navy’s leading suppliers. Its first big-ticket program was the supply of a $80-90 million U.S. 15,600-ton fleet tanker. With Karachi Shipyard & Engineering Works’ (KSEW) support, STM launched the ship for sea trials in August 2016.
