Today, the majority of countries possessing domestic or international water ways have been attempting to benefit from the advantages and facilities of marine industry specially investment in the procurement of small and large vessels. Unfortunately, procurement and utilization of passenger ships for the carriage and transfer of passengers and providing services for oil and gas platforms, required equipment for fueling and supply have not been seriously considered and supported, and few vessels manufactured by Iranian companies are active in passenger transfer and supply for oil projects. The rest of active vessels in this field are owned by foreign companies the exit of which we have witnessed due to sanctions imposed on our country. Therefore, it is essential to take measures and financially support in order for the substitution of supply vessels and passenger ships under the ownership of Iranian companies. Having the largest fast marine fleet in private sector, Iran Offshore Co. seeks to expand and empower its marine fleet in accordance with the goals and strategies of the Article 44 of Iran’s Constitution.
