Keppel Shipyard’s latest contracts bear testament to its extensive expertise and experience in Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) and Floating Storage and Offloading (FSO) conversion, upgrading and repair works. Meanwhile, Keppel Nantong’s two new projects reflect its growing newbuilding and fabrication capabilities.”

Keppel Shipyard’s contracts are FPSO and FSO projects from Armada C7 Pte Ltd, (Armada C7), a joint venture company of Bumi Armada Berhad (Bumi Armada) and Shapoorji Pallonji Group (SP); Apache Energy Limited (Apache Energy); and EMAS AMC Pte Ltd (EMAS AMC).

Keppel Shipyard’s work scope includes refurbishment and life extension works, upgrading of living quarters to accommodate 70 personnel, fabrication and installation of an internal turret mooring system as well as the installation and integration of topside process modules.
