Sarawak Slipways of Miri, Sarawak East Malaysia has delivered the 1179 gross tonne FPSO support vessel OMS Terra Nova. A pair of mains engines each generating 1838 Kw (2518 hp) at 750 RPM power the Niigata Z-Drives on the ABS-classed dynamic positioning vessel. In the focsle area a 700 hp Cummins KTA19-M4 engine powers a retractable HRP azimuthing bow thruster as an essential component of the vessel's dynamic positioning system.

For electrical requirements, the 50 by 13.8-meter vessel has a pair of Cummins QSM11-powered 250 kW generator sets.

Aft of the main house a double drum MacGregor Plimsoll double drum anchor handling winch is completely enclosed. A closed circuit television system allows the wheelhouse to monitor action around the winch. The boat has a designed bollard pull of 55 tons forward and 42 tons aft with the mains at 100% MCR.

Accommodation on the vessel is provided for up 23 crewmembers plus an additional sick by berth. The OMS Terra Nova, registered in Port Klang, , is the first of two being built at the Sarawak Slipways Sdn. Bhd.
