Aibel to build topside modules for TEN FPSO in Ghana
Aibel Thailand has signed the contract for the topside procurement and fabrication of the Tweneboa, Enyenra & Ntomme (TEN) project with MODEC. The scope includes seven modules with an overall weight of 9,400 tonnes.
The modules will be transported from Aibel’s yard in Thailand to Singapore where they will be integrated on a Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit, before the FPSO is installed offshore Ghana.
“We are very pleased to continue our good relationship with MODEC here in South East Asia. This project follows on from Tupi, Guara and OSX-3 and we expect additional projects from MODEC in the future,” says Nick Routledge, VP Operations and Business Development Aibel Asia.
The project represents a substantial amount of work for the yard in Thailand next year. The project activities will start with first fabrication late April 2014. The final module will be loaded out at the end of April 2015.
The end client is Tullow Ghana Ltd. The FPSO will operate in deep waters off Ghana, West Africa.
