Keppel rejects Awilco’s contract termination

first_imgFollowing Awilco Drilling’s cancellation of a rig construction contract with Keppel due to alleged breaches of the contract, Keppel has denied the allegations and rejected the termination. Keppel FELS denies the allegations by Awilco and has rejected the purported termination of the contract. However, Awilco on Monday said it had cancelled the order due to “breaches of the contract”. Responding to Awilco’s cancellation, Keppel said on Tuesday that Awilco cited certain breaches relating to the project management, schedule, resourcing and compliance. Keppel FELS has further reserved all its rights under the contract, including the right to retain the instalments already received and to seek compensation for the work done to date in the event that Awilco defaults in the payment of the 9 June Instalment. According to Keppel, the notice of termination came shortly before the next payment instalment of $31.875 million due from Awilco under the contract on 9 June 2020, which was previously deferred in March 2020 at Awilco’s request. Awilco ordered a semi-submersible drilling rig of a Moss Maritime CS60 Eco MW design from Keppel in March 2018. The rig, named Nordic Winter, was scheduled for delivery in 1Q 2021. The order was worth about $425 million. Keppel FELS is currently considering its legal options and evaluating potential financial impact in consultation with its advisors. Under the terms of the contract, an effective termination of the contract by Awilco might entitle it to the return of payments already made (approximately $54 million) with interest, or to pay for the work done by Keppel FELS and take over the rig. Keppel is building one more rig of the same design for Awilco and Awilco also has rig independent options for two additional rigs of the same design for delivery in 1Q 2023 and 2024, respectively.last_img read more

Pirlo was only named the club’s Under-23 head coach last month, but has secured a major promotion before even taking charge of one match with the Serie C outfit. It will be a major challenge for the 41-year-old who has never managed before, either at youth or senior level. “Today’s choice is based on the belief that Pirlo has what it takes to lead from his debut on the bench, an expert and talented squad to pursue new successes,” a statement from Juventus read. Pirlo returns to Juve having starred for the club between 2011 and 2015. The midfielder helped lead the Bianconeri to four straight Serie A titles, as well as the final of the 2014–15 Champions League. Internationally, Pirlo represented Italy on 116 occasions and was a member of his country’s victorious 2006 World Cup team.center_img His playing career ended in 2017 after a three-year spell at MLS side New York City FC, after which he began preparing for a career in coaching. Pirlo will take over a team that has won nine consecutive Serie A titles, but has continued to fall short in the Champions League.

Juventus were shockingly eliminated by Lyon in the Champions League last 16 on Friday, as a 2-1 victory over the Ligue 1 side was not enough to avoid an exit on away goals in a 2-2 aggregate final score. Following a meeting of Juve’s hierarchy on Saturday, the decision was taken to swiftly replace the 61-year-old former Chelsea and Napoli manager. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 last_img read more
