South Korea: DSME Secures USD 2 Bln FPSO Order

Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering, one of the world’s leading shipbuilders, has secured USD 2 billion order for the construction of one FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading) vessel. The order comes from Japan’s top oil and gas explorer Inpex Corporation.

The delivery of the vessel is scheduled for April 2016. This FPSO will operate in the Browse Basin as a part of Inpex’s Ichthys project offshore Western Australia.

Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering, established in 1973 and restructured as an independent company in October 2000 at Okpo Bay, Geoje Island, on the southeastern tip of the Korean Peninsula, has developed into the world’s premium specialized shipbuilding and offshore contractor that builds various vessels, offshore platforms, drilling rigs, floating oil production units, submarines, and destroyers. The company employs approximately 1,500 design and R&D personnel with prolific experience, and more than 15,000 skilled workers.

DSME has both shipbuilding and offshore engineering businesses in its shipyards. The company’s 900-ton goliath cranes and dry docks that are capable of building hulls of up to 12 m in width provide optimal conditions to build floating offshore plant products such as FPSOs and FPUs. Utilizing extensive plant, submarine, and battle ship building technology, the upper and lower portions of a floating plant facility are made in the streamlined production lines and then loaded by a large crane to complete the facility. On top of this, underwater exploration technology and relevant marine analysis technology provide the solid technological foundation.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
