Palfinger Dreggen AS has been awarded a contract for the delivery of 28 cranes to Sembcorp Marine’s subsidiary Jurong Shipyard Pte. Ltd. The contract includes the supply of cranes for a total of seven drillships to Sete Brasil, scheduled for delivery between 2014 and 2017. Palfinger Dreggen AS has also signed a contract with Technip for the delivery of two complex offshore cranes to a new platform which will be delivered to DONG for operation on the Danish Hejre field. PALFINGER DREGGEN’s delivery to Jurong Shipyard Pte. Ltd. will make use of the existing cooperation with the Brazilian company Koch Metalúrgica S.A. and will consist of cranes for seven drillship sets. Each vessel is to be equipped with two DKF2000 Pedestal Knuckle Boom Cranes and two DKW2000 Pedestal Wireluffing Cranes. The Knuckle Boom Cranes have a capacity of 85 tons and the Wireluffing Cranes a capacity of 63 tons. All seven drillships will be built at Sembcorp Marine’s new Brazilian shipyard Estaleiro Jurong Aracruz Ltd. and based on the Jurong Espadon design. The Espadon drillships will be built to cater to the oil and gas discoveries in the giant offshore pre-salt fields of the Santos Basin. They will be capable of operating at water depths of 10,000 feet (3.05 km) and drilling at depths of 40,000 feet (12.2 km). Due to its size and value, this contract represents not only a milestone for Palfinger Dreggen AS and Koch Metalúrgica S.A. but also for the entire PALFINGER group. The renowned Norwegian crane supplier was acquired by the Austrian PALFINGER Group in November 2012 and is meant to play a lead role in the growing PALFINGER MARINE business unit OFFSHORE CRANES.
PALFINGER DREGGEN focuses on the Brazilian offshore market
Established with offices and subsidiaries in Singapore and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the company has positioned itself strategically to meet the growing demand from the Brazilian oil and gas industry. Another important prerequisite to entry in Brazil is the established partnership with the Brazilian crane manufacturer Koch Metalúrgica S.A., situated in Cachoeirinha in the state of Rio Grande do Sul. This industrial cooperation contributes substantially to PALFINGER DREGGEN’s ambition to meet the demands of Brazilian authorities’ for local content and consequently to qualify for the contract awarded.
