Wednesday, June 28, 2000
Keppel Shipyard entered into a co-operation agreement with Smedvig Asia recently to build a Semi-Submersible Self-Erecting Tender Rig (SSETR), a contract with a total estimated worth of $82.5 million, $59.5 million of which is Keppel’s share. For its part, Keppel Shipyard will build and own the semi-submersible hull, while Smedvig owns the derrick equipment set. Smedvig will be responsible for marketing, managing and operating the rig for a 10-year period. It can also purchase the semi-submersible hull within this time frame.
