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.

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.
