Singapore: Sembcorp to Upgrade 20-year-old FSO Palanca

Sembcorp Marine’s subsidiary Sembawang Shipyard has secured a contract for  the repair and upgrading of FSO Palanca from Angola’s state controlled oil company Songangol.

The contract, signed in Luanda, Angola, calls for the major repairs and upgrading of the 20-year-old FSO Palanca, used for storage and offloading of oil produced from Angola’s Block 3.

The scope of work includes the renewal of the vessel’s cargo piping system and pumps, tank blasting and coating, and cables renewal for the entire electrical system. The existing 30-men accommodation block will be re-designed and rebuilt to accommodate 60 men. The new accommodation block will include a new helideck to meet the vessel’s operational requirements. The vessel is expected to enter Sembawang Shipyard in August 2012 and, upon completion, will return to Palanca Terminal offshore Angola.
