Sembcorp Marine wins two renewable energy engineering contracts

Singapore’s Sembcorp Marine has been awarded two separate contracts worth S$200m ($144m) for renewable energy engineering solutions.

The yard has secured a contract from Ørsted Wind Power’s subsidiary Optimus Wind for engineering, procurement, construction, hook-up and commissioning works on two topsides to be deployed at the Hornsea 2 Offshore Wind Farm in the UK North Sea.

The two topsides will be fabricated at Sembcorp Marine’s integrated yard facilities with delivery scheduled in the first quarter of 2021.

“We are very grateful to Ørsted and Optimus for the contract, and for the opportunity to progress further in the competitive offshore renewable energy market,” said Samuel Wong, head of offshore platforms of Sembcorp Marine.

Separately, Sembcorp Marine has won its first design-and-construction roll on/roll off passenger (ropax) ship project comprising three identical plug-in ropax ferries. These vessels will be built to a proprietary design from Sembcorp Marine subsidiary LMG Marin, for delivery to Norled in the fourth quarter of 2020.

“Sembcorp Marine’s project with Norled marks our entry into the ropax ferry design and construction segment. It also demonstrates our ambition to be a leading provider of renewable energy-driven solutions,” said Tan Heng Jack, head of specialised shipbuilding at Sembcorp Marine.
