Keppel Shipyard Ltd (Keppel Shipyard) has completed the upgrade and modification of FPSO Armada Perkasa for repeat customer Bumi Armada. A ceremony was held for the sailâ€“away of the vessel for its deployment in the Okoro Setu Fields, Nigeria.
Gracing the occasion was Mr Olatunde Emmanuel Odusina, Minister of State for Energy (Gas), Nigeria.
Keppel Shipyardâ€™s affiliation with Bumi Armada goes back into the last decade when it first converted the FPSO Armada Perkasa in 1997 for operation in the PM3 field, Malaysia.
The vessel subsequently returned for refurbishment, life extension and repair prior to its current upgrade. This upgrade includes installation of additional field equipment and modification of FPSO and shipboard systems.
