Keppel Shipyard upgrades FPSO for repeat Malaysian customer

Keppel Shipyard upgrades FPSO for repeat Malaysian customer

Singapore: Keppel Shipyard has completed a second upgrade and modification of FPSO Armada Perkasa for repeat customer Bumi Armada - one of the largest owners and operators of offshore support vessels in Malaysia.. The vessel holds a special significance for the two companies as Keppel Shipyard first converted this FPSO in 1997 for operation in the PM3 field, Malaysia. The vessel subsequently returned for refurbishment, life extension and repair prior to its current upgrade.  

This particular upgrade includes installation of additional field equipment and modification of FPSO and shipboard systems. Olatunde Emmanuel Odusina, Nigerian Minister of State for Energy (pictured third from left) was present for the sail-away ceremony for the vessel, which will be deployed in the Okoro Setu Fields (Nigeria).

Keppel Shipyard is a wholly owned subsidiary of Keppel Corporation through Keppel O&M. It is known for its activity in the offshore rigs, ship repair and conversion and specialised shipbuilding arenas.  [05/12/07]
