Keppel Singmarine has secured contracts with two separate companies worth a total of S$65 million.
The specialised shipbuilder, which is a subsidiary of Keppel Offshore and Marine, will work with Seaways International on a newbuild multi-task Anchor Handling Tug (AHT) vessel suitable for a variety of different offshore activities. The vessel will have a bollard pull of 100 tonnes, and be equipped with class 1 and 2 firefighting capabilities, Class 2 dp systems, oil recovery class 1 capabilities and other equipment. The AHT is expected to be delivered in the second quarter of 2016 and will be the fifth AHT unit that Keppel Singmarine has constructed for Seaways.
The second contract comes from Nakilat-Keppel Offshore and Marine (N-KOM), a joint venture shipyard in Qatar, and is to provide technical services for the building of a liftboat.
Speaking about the new contracts, Abu Bakar Mohd Nor, managing director of Keppel Singmarine said: “BY taking on new projects such as the liftboat, we continuously expand our suite of technology solutions so as to better meet the demands of the specialised shipbuilding market.”
