SINGAPORE - 16 April 2018 - The Board of Directors (the "Board") of Civmec Limited (the "Company"), together with its subsidiaries (the "Group"), wish to advise that the Company has been awarded a contract from Luerssen Australia ("Luerssen") in relation to the SEA1180 Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV) project.
The awarded scope includes the supply and processing of steel for all twelve vessels.
