For the second project, Keppel Shipyard has received a Letter of Award (LoA) from BW Offshore, a fully-owned subsidiary of the BW Group, to undertake the integration work on a newbuild FPSO. The formal contract signing is expected by early 2022. Keppel Shipyard will be responsible for the integration of about 35,000 tons of topside modules and a turret. Additional options are available for the fabrication of structures such as a flare tower. The total value of the two projects is expected to be around $200 million, including the FNTP.
