Philippines’ Keppel Batangas, a division of Singapore’s Keppel Offshore & Marine has recently completed repairs to the Attwood Falcon, a semi-submersible rig owned and managed by Atwood Oceanic Inc, Houston. The rig was repaired alongside yard’s deep water wharf.

This yard has also been involved in the repair of two ships involved in a collision off the Philippines coast.

Keppel Batangas also recently repaired another of the Negros Navigation fleet, the St Peter the Apostle.

Other ships recently repaired include two bulk carriers from V Ships (Switzerland) - the 46,513 dwt Glarus, and the 45,269 dwt Luzern, with the 45,300 dwt Unterwalden, from the same shipmanagement company due to arrive in late October. Two cement carriers from Taiwan’s U-Ming Marine Transport Corp were also recently repaired – the 19,651 dwt Asia Cement No.7 and the Asia Cement No.1. The passenger/car ferry Super Ferry 2, which is operated by Aboitiz Jebsens, Philippines, recently underwent an emergency drydocking.
