Press Release
Monday, November 19, 2012

Sembcorp Marine’s Jurong Shipyard & Prosafe sign for a 2nd accommodation semi-submersible at US$ 295.2-million.

Scheduled for delivery no later than end of December 2014, this accommodation semi-submersible (semi) will be built based on the GVA 3000E design, a similar design as the first unit, the Safe Boreas, presently under construction in Jurong Shipyard.   This is Prosafe’s second accommodation semi with JSPL, following the first order contracted in December 2011.

Along with the latest contract, JSPL has granted two additional options to Prosafe for further newbuilds. Including the option previously granted last year, Prosafe will now have a total of three options for accommodation semi newbuilds at JSPL.  The accommodation semis for the two additional options can be designed for either the Norwegian Continental Shelf or for world-wide operations outside of Norway.

Featuring the latest technology, the GVA 3000E design accommodation semi is capable of operating gangway connected in deep water and in harsh environments alongside fixed platforms, floating platform and floating production and offloading vessels, with a full complement of deck cranes and fire-fighting capabilities.

The 450-person capacity Dynamic Positioning 3 (DP3) unit with 12 point mooring will be built in compliance with stringent Norwegian Offshore health and safety standards and is suitable for harsh environment operations in the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
