Singapore’s Keppel Offshore & Marine, through its units Keppel FELS and Keppel Shipyard, has been awarded S$130 million ($95.7 million) worth of deals. 

The contract includes a newbuild LNG-ready dredger for the Dutch dredging specialist Van Oord and the modification of a floating production storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) for Yinson.

Chris Ong, CEO of Keppel O&M, said, “this is the third newbuild dredger for Van Oord and the third FPSO project for Yinson.”

The first contract is between Keppel FELS and Van Oord to build a trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD). This follows from an option granted to Van Oord based on earlier contracts entered in May 2018 for two similar dredgers.

Expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2022, the TSHD will have a hopper capacity of 10,500 cubic meters. The dredger will be built to the requirements of classification society Bureau Veritas (BV) and will be LNG ready.

The second contract is between Keppel Shipyard and Yinson Nepeta Production, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Yinson Production (Yinson), for the fast-track modification and upgrading of FPSO Allan.
