MMHE Now Has LNG Drydocking And Refurbishment Capability

Tuesday, November 28, 2006
Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Sdn Bhd (MMHE), a wholly-owned subsidiary of MISC Bhd, has successfully completed a post gas trial inspection and final docking works on a liquefied natural gas (LNG) tanker at its shipyard in Pasir Gudang. The success was the first to have been achieved by a Malaysian shipyard and was capped with the naming ceremony of the LNG tanker Seri Anggun at the shipyard, also another first in the country. The company said only a few shipyards in this region today have the capability to carry out LNG tanker drydocking and refurbishment, and that capability is now available in Malaysia.

MMHE recently completed the fabrication of the hull and mooring system of the Truss Spar Deepwater Floating Production Platform for the Kikeh oil field offshore Sabah, its first deepwater project and the first deepwater offshore structure to be built in Malaysia. The shipyard will also be involved in building the Gemusut deepwater facilities, recognised as among the largest deepwater facilities in the world. In support of its new business thrust, Mohd Hassan said MMHE had formed a joint venture with Samsung Heavy Industries to provide LNG ship repair services, which apart from drydocking and repairs of 11 LNG tankers to date, the collaboration had made the final docking of "Seri Anggun" in Pasir Gudang possible.

With a fleet of 29 LNG tankers by 2009, MISC will be able to offer greater operational capability and flexibility to its customers, he added. The new 145,000-cubic metre LNG tanker "Seri Anggun" is the third in a series of five tankers of the "Seri A" class built for MISC by Samsung Heavy Industries. The first two, "Seri Alam" and "Seri Amanah", were delivered in 2005 and early this year respectively while the remaining two will be delivered by the end of next year. source: The Edge Dails
