Paxocean Penta Ocean Sep Vessel

PaxOcean Group has signed a new contract with Penta-Ocean Construction to construct a self-elevating platform (SEP) for use in Japan’s nascent offshore wind energy sector.

The crane will be fitted with a 1,600-tonne capacity leg-encircling crane and a 3,800 sqm clear deck area.

Chief executive officer of PaxOcean Holdings, Tan Thai Yong, said: “This SEP will be built at our yard in Batam [Indonesia], leveraging on our strong track record of having delivered 12 high-quality jack-ups and SEPs to several satisfied international customers in the past.”

A subsidiary of Kuok Singapore, PaxOcean owns and operates six shipyards located in Singapore, China and Indonesia.

This is so far the second Japan-based construction that is investing in SEP. Last year, Shimizu has announced on its investment in the world largest SEP.
