Sembcorp Marine's subsidiaries Sembmarine SLP and Jurong Shipyard have secured offshore energy related contracts worth at a combined S$222 million (US$177 million).
The firm's 70% owned UK-based firm Sembmarine SLP is to build a new offshore substation platform for a European wind farm and a subsidiary Jurong Shipyard is to convert a tanker to an FPSO for the TEN development offshore Ghana.

Sembmarine SLP will design and build the offshore substation platform for the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm. The contract has been granted by Siemens Transmission & Distribution, which was awarded the contract for the electrical system infrastructure by the wind farm’s developer Dudgeon Offshore Wind, a joint venture between Norwegian Energy firms Statkraft and Statoil.
SLP will work closely with Siemens and will be responsible for the design, engineering, procurement, project management and construction of the platform’s jacket substructure and topside. Siemens will provide the transformers and high voltage electrical distribution technology. The Offshore Transformer Station (OTS) will be constructed at SLP’s yard in Lowestoft on the UK’s Suffolk coast.
Sembmarine SLP’s Managing Director Paul Thomson said: “The Dudgeon platform will be a new generation OTS based on our early success with the Thanet substation previously delivered to Siemens."
Jurong Shipyard has been contracted by regular customer MODEC Offshore Production Systems (Singapore), to complete the repair and life extension, and conversion of a very large crude carrier into a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel as part of Tullow Oil's TEN Development Project offshore Ghana, west Africa. This is the 22nd FPSO conversion project which Jurong Shipyard is working on with MODEC.
When completed in 4Q 2015, the TEN development FPSO will have a capacity of production and treatment of 80,000bbl/d of crude oil, 65,000bbl/d of produced water, and 180MMscfd of gas, with an onboard storage capacity of 1.7MMbbl. The facility will include for delivery 132,000bbl/d of filtered, de-aerated seawater.
The TEN Development FPSO will be external turret moored in 1000-1800m water depth and operated by MODEC, on behalf of Tullow Ghana, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tullow Oil. The FPSO will host multiple subsea tiebacks from three reservoirs (Tweneboa, Enyenra, Ntomme) in the Deep Water Tano block.
