Yinson’s newest FPSO named Helang

Malaysia’s Yinson Holdings held an official naming ceremony for Helang, its newest floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit, at the Jiangsu facilities of COSCO Shipping Qidong Offshore on Thursday, July 25.

The 249- by 42-metre vessel, which had undergone conversion at COSCO Shipping Qidong after originally being built as a gas tanker, will be the first FPSO to be operated by Yinson in Malaysia.

Helang is scheduled to sail for the Layang oil field offshore Sarawak in August for its first project under Yinson.
