Revenue from the contracts will be booked against 2015 financial year earnings.
The company has also announced the decision to invest $30,7 million in an Indonesian ship owning and chartering company.
Nam Cheong is set to take a 30% interest in the share capital of BBR, a subsidiary of Marco Polo Marine.
The two companies recently signed a joint venture collaboration deal relation to investment, funding, ownership and operation of vessels, including accommodation work vessels, work-boats, accommodation work barges, anchor handling tugs and supply vessels.
The company is involved in the ownership and management of a fleet of vessels operating in the growing Indonesian market.
BBR is set to use the buy to purchase five more vessels to add to its fleet.
