The Pakistan Navy Fleet Tanker Project (PNFT) Agreement was signed on January 22, 2013 in Rawalpindi/Pakistan between the Pakistan Ministry of Defence Production and our company, which includes the design and construction of the Navy Fleet Tanker for the purpose of meeting the operational needs of Pakistan Navy.
As the main contractor of the PNFT project, our company was responsible for providing the ship design package and the material package including materials, devices and systems to be used in shipbuilding and equipment, and building the ship in Karachi Shipyard.
The vessel, which was designed in accordance with the classification rules for the purpose of replenishment at sea/logistics support at sea as solid and liquid cargo for Pakistan Navy ships in line with the needs and requests of the Pakistan Navy, has a weight of 15,600 tons, a length of approximately 155 metres and a maximum speed of 20 knots.
Pakistan Navy Fleet Tanker, one of the largest export projects of Turkey on a platform basis, was launched on August 19, 2016 with a ceremony held in Karachi. After its equipment activities, it performed its first cruise on the Indian Ocean on March 31, 2018, took the name PNS MOAWIN and delivered to the Pakistan Navy on October 16, 2018.
In addition, the following services have been provided by our company:
Integrated Logistics Support (ILS) and spare parts,
Maintenance, storage and user trainings for the crew and shipyard personnel
Technical support for ship building and outfitting to Karachi Shipyard.
Thanks to STM, approximately 20 Turkish companies were able to take part in the Pakistan Navy Fleet Tanker project, largely owing to the industrialisation experience our company has gained during the MİLGEM project. Thus, the project also created an opportunity to use the indigenous products of the Turkish defence industry and the shipbuilding industry and to expand Turkish companies abroad.
