Asian Offshore Services continues to capture and deliver numerous modular projects throughout 2013, including the recently delivered Murphy Oil living quarters in Malaysia.
This 40-man living quarters was designed as a three-level modular building that allowed the first level (MCC room, control room, telecoms room, offices, medial sick bay, battery room and male/female locker rooms) to be delivered prior to completion of remaining upper levels. These contain a mess room, galley, laundry room, surau, gym, janitor rooms and bedrooms.
The modular design also allows all electrical, instrument and telecoms hardware and software to be installed and commissioned prior to completion and installation of levels two and three.
The fast-track project was delivered to KHL Lumut yard for final integration into the utility deck prior to loadout and installation onto Murphy Oil Serendah field development.

2013 has been an extremely busy year for Asian Offshore Services as a follow-on to its very successful 2012. The company is presently in the process of bidding for many additional projects throughout SE Asia and Australasia. It is very confident these new projects will continue to prove to regional operators that Asian Offshore Services is one of the market leaders in SE Asia for specialist design and manufacturing of modular and single-lift living quarters, E-houses and general purpose buildings.
Asian Offshore Services MD Faisal Siebel said: "AOS continues to support regional requirements for bespoke modular and single-lift E-houses, living quarters and multi-purpose buildings for both brown and greenfield projects and we continue to develop new generation designed modules to place us ahead of our competitors throughout the region.
"Our 2013 projects show the strength of AOS in the region and is now a recognised and established major player in what is seen as a specialist market providing specialist services.
"We are also very optimistic that we will continue to build on our successful projects in 2014 and secure numerous other prestigious contracts for our company as part of our business strategy to continue the development of AOS into a major Malaysian specialist fabricator supporting both the international and local Malaysian markets."
