Keppel Subic Shipyard

Keppel Cubic Shipyard, Inc. (KSSI), a subsidiary of KPMI, provides a wide spectrum of repair, conversion and modification, new building, offshore structure and topside module fabrication services to ship owners and rig operators. Our shipyard is strategically located within the Subic Shipyard – Special Economic Zone in Subic, Zambales.

Shiprepair and conversion
We have undertaken the repair and conversion of supertankers, including the conversion of a single hull tanker to double hull, demolition and marine-related work for conversion to a Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel with extensive internal tank coating and steelworks. We also specialize in coal transshipper conversion work and newbuildings, having completed several such projects in recent years.

Our shipyard also routinely carries out specialized machinery reconditioning works and steel fabrication for land-based and marine or offshore structures.

Offshore structure and topside module fabrication
Committed to safe, prompt and high quality turnarounds, we are growing our track record for a broad range of projects to include the fabrication of a Depletion Compression Platform (DCP) to support the recovery of natural gas from the Malampaya gas field located off Palawan islands. The yard is responsible for the fabrication of the entire DCP, including the fabrication and integration of the topside modules and fabrication of a link bridge that connects to an existing shallow water platform with complete topside modules built in a Philippine shipyard.

Shipbuilding
Our shipyard is steadily growing its newbuilding track record. With good rapport and open communications with our customers and stakeholders along the value chain, we are able to deliver promptly and safely on their stringent newbuilding requirement.

Enhanced capabilities
With one of the largest drydock and a 1,500 tonne lifting capacity gantry crane, the biggest of its kind in the Philippines, we have the capability to do topside modules fabrication, offshore platforms and FPSO conversion and integration work.

Our drydock, one of the largest in the Philippines, is capable of co-drydockings. Vessels or projects requiring a longer repair or fabrication period can be docked at the inner portion while the other section takes in vessels with shorter turnaround time. It can accommodate Very Large Crude Carriers, container ships and bulk carriers.

Keppel Subic has built additional capabilities with investment in a clean room facility, complete with overhead crane services, to be able to accommodate the delicate requirements for the repair and upgrading of Liquefied Natural Gas Carrier (LNGC) vessels. It also has dome houses and other equipment to support the operation. The yard has completed work for LNGC repair projects to include cargo valves, cargo pumps and spray pumps overhauling and testing.
