Liebherr inks offshore crane deal

October 7 - Liebherr-Werk Nenzing will supply Singapore's Jurong Shipyard with two offshore cranes, which will be installed onboard an FPSO vessel.

Jurong Shipyard, a subsidiary of Sembcorp Marine, ordered two BOS 2600-35 EX LIT offshore cranes that will be equipped to the Libra field's Extended Well Test FPSO vessel.
The Libra oil field is a large, ultra-deepwater oil prospect located in the Santos Basin 230 km off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. OOGTK Libra, a joint venture between Brazil's Odebrecht Oil & Gas and Teekay Offshore, awarded a contract to Jurong Shipyard for conversion of the Navion Norvegia shuttle tanker to form the Libra EWT FPSO.
Liebherr's role in the project is to design, manufacture and deliver the two offshore cranes; Liebherr's Singapore division will supervise the assembly and commissioning process.
The cranes are being fabricated at Liebherr's MCCtec Rostock facility in Germany. They are scheduled for final installation in the first quarter of 2016.
