Keppel FELS completes US$10 million repair

Keppel FELS Limited (Keppel FELS), the offshore arm of Keppel FELS Energy & Infrastructure Limited, has completed a US$10 million contract to repair Tam Dao, a jack-up drilling rig from Vietnam-Russian joint venture company, Vietsovpetro. Tam Dao, an MSC CJ 50 design rig, was built by Keppel FELS in 1988. It has since been operating well in Vietnam and giving the owner/operator good commercial returns. The last repair of the rig done by Keppel FELS was in 1992. Said Mr Tong Chong Heong, Executive Director of Keppel FELS, “We are pleased to have taken on this project with our long-time client, Vietsovpetro, with whom we have worked since the late ‘80s when we delivered Tam Dao to them. This project highlights Keppel FELS’ capability in providing value-added jobs like repair in addition to construction and conversion for the offshore market.” Under the contract, Keppel FELS overhauled the rig’s main generators, repaired its blowout preventer (BOP) units and jacking structures. Keppel FELS also replaced some of the rig’s drilling equipment and refurbished its existing derrick. The rig’s electrical, piping, automation and electronic systems were also repaired. Drydock works which include complete painting of the hull have been carried out.
