Keppel Offshore & Marine units win orders totalling $140 million

Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) subsidiaries Keppel Shipyard, Keppel Singmarine and Keppel Nantong Shipyard Co have secured contracts worth a total of about $140 million.

Keppel Shipyard will undertake for Sofec Inc the fabrication of an external turret mooring system for a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel that will operate in the Tweneboa-Enyenra-Ntomme fields in Ghana, in water depth averaging 1,500 metres.

Fabrication of the turret is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2015.

Meanwhile, Keppel Singmarine has secured three contracts from Bumi Armada Offshore Holdings - a subsidiary of Bumi Armada - to build two ice-class supply vessels and an ice-class multi-purpose duty-rescue vessel.

When completed and delivered in 2015, these vessels will support offshore platforms at the Filanovsky oil field in the northern part of the Caspian Sea, off the coast of Russia, providing year-round services such as the delivery of cargoes, salvage, search and rescue functions, fire-fighting operations, and towing and tanker mooring operations.

In China, Keppel Nantong has secured an order from KSP Towage for the construction of two tugs.

These tugs, scheduled for delivery in the third quarter of this year, will be chartered for deployment in Malaysia.
