Presently, Keppel Singmarine's projects include a multi-purpose dive support construction vessel for SBM Offshore N.V. (SBM Offshore).
Keppel Shipyard's new contract is from EMAS Offshore Construction and Production Pte Ltd (EMAS Offshore) to modify and upgrade an existing Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) facility, Lewek Arunothai.
