PEMA to Equip Keppel FELS with Additional Welding Automation
Pemamek received another contract to supplement Keppel FELS’ Singapore yard upgrading. The new contract consists of two PEMA robotic profile processing lines.
Keppel FELS has constantly invested in increasing productivity and capabilities of their rig production process. The new supplement to their production machinery is a high-capacity robotic profile processing lines of two.
The line includes cutting and marking features and automatic palletizing systems. The new profile processing system supports the modern panel line, which is currently under delivery, but also provides profile processing capacity to various other needs of the yard.
Previously PEMA delivered, in addition to the panel line, also a supportive micro panel line for manufacturing the oil rigs.
To support the high requirements for the production and even raise the standards, Finnish Pemamek Oy Ltd has been contracted by Keppel FELS to implement the flexible PEMA technology in the yard’s rig production which ensures high productivity and quality.
”PEMA is a reliable partner and we are pleased that they have presented creative new solutions to enhance our operations. They have the proven technology and ability to deliver the right solutions to meet our needs,” said Mr. NG, Seng Chong, Deputy Shipyard Manager.
This contract is the third between Keppel and Pemamek in a year: Keppel Offshore & Marine’s new yard in Baku, Azerbaijan also acquired a panel line system in early 2012.
