Sembcorp Marine to Build World’s Largest Semi-Submersible Crane Vessel

Sembcorp to Build Largest Semi-Submersible Crane Vessel

Singapore-listed Sembcorp Marine (SCM) has entered into a USD 1 billion contract to build the world’s largest DP3 semi-submersible crane vessel (NSCV) for Heerema Offshore Services B.V.

This follows an earlier exclusive letter-of-intent signed between SCM’s wholly owned subsidiary Jurong Shipyard and Hereema in March this year for the NSCV.

Scheduled for delivery in the fourth quarter of 2018, the NSCV is designed for the installation and decommissioning of major offshore facilities world-wide.

It will be equipped with two Huisman heavy-lifting offshore cranes of 10,000 MT lifting capacity each, and a large reinforced work deck area.

The new NSCV will have the length of 220 metres, width of 102 metres and displacement of 273,700 MT.

The NSCV will be built at the Sembcorp Marine Tuas Boulevard Yard.

”With our new facilities at Tuas that boost deeper quayside draft and wider dock space, we are confident that we will be able to meet our customer’s expectations. This is also in alignment with our strategic vision to penetrate into the Deep water draft market segment and also serves as a great testimony to our continuous commitment in providing one-stop, tailor-made solutions to our customers,” William Gu Wei Guang, Head of Sembcorp Marine Rigs & Floaters, said.
