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.
