Keppel Offshore & Marine subsidiaries, Keppel Shipyard and Keppel Nantong Shipyard have won contracts from repeat customers worth S$153 million.
Keppel Shipyard has secured a contract for the conversion of a Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel for Armada Cabaca Limited, which is subsidiary of Bumi Armada Berhad.
Keppel Nantong has landed a contract to build a submersible barge for the wholly-owned subsidiary of Royal Boskalis Westminster Group, Smit Shipping Singapore.
MD of marine and technology, Keppel O&M, Michael Chia said: “The award of these contracts from Bumi Armada and Smit Shipping affirms the confidence that repeat customers have in the quality of our products and the timeliness which we deliver with. Such high level of standards in safety, customer service, and operational excellence can be found across our global yards.
"In working with these customers who have shown great faith and support in us, we will draw from our working experiences in previous and ongoing projects to continuously improve our performance and provide value-added services.”

The vessel, called Giant 7, is the third to be delivered that the company will be delivered to the marine services company.
