Kepphil Shipyard Delivers First Of Two Tankers

Kepphil Shipyard Incorporated, a subsidiary of Keppel Philippines Holdings, Inc., recently completed and delivered its largest clean product tanker. The 4,990-dwt vessel is the first of a two-tanker contract with the owner, Terban Marine Corporation.

In a delivery ceremony, Adriana Willems — spouse of Reiner Willems, who is the CEO of Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation named the vessel Carla 2. "The decision to build Carla 2 is in line with our fleet modernization program, a move aimed to provide our valued charterers with higher quality ships and services," said Terban Marine Vice President Vic Ignacio.

"Its successful delivery testifies to Kepphil Shipyard's expertise not only in ship repair but also in the field of shipbuilding," he added. Hoe Eng Hock, president of Kepphil Shipyard, said, "Carla 2 demonstrates that shipbuilders here are capable of meeting demands of local shipowners embarking on the modernization of their fleet. With more incentives and support from the government, shipbuilders will be able to further expand our services to better serve the Philippine market." Carla 2 has an overall length of 323.2 ft. (98.5 m) and a cargo capacity of 6,000-cu.-m. It is installed with two cargo pumps, each delivering 500 cu. m. of petroleum products per hour. Powered by a single, 3,080-bhp @ 90 rpm engine, the vessel is capable of a service speed of 12 knots.

The vessel is built in accordance with the classification rules of the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) with the notation Maltese Cross A1 Oil Carrier/AMS Circle E. The vessel will accommodate a crew of 22, and will be chartered by Pilipinas Shell Petroleum for servicing outports in Philippine territorial waters.

Carla 2's sister vessel is expected to be completed in the first quarter of this year.

Kepphil Shipyard is also busy with the conversion of a 5,700-dwt product tanker, Reta Link III, to an asphalt carrier, as well as the repair of local and foreign vessels. For more information on Kepphil Shipyard Circle 9 6 on Reader Service Card
