Amec Foster Wheeler Wins Kenyan Oil Terminal Deal
Amec Foster Wheeler has been awarded a project management consultancy contract by consultancy company NIRAS to support the next stages in the development of a Kenya Ports Authority project for the offshore relocation and expansion of the Kipevu Oil Terminal (KOT) in Mombasa, Kenya.
KOT will be relocated to a site adjacent to Mombasa port berth 16 and 17 and overlooking the naval base in Mtongwe.
The project will involve decommissioning of the existing Kipevu Oil Terminal and construction of an offshore jetty near Dongo Kundu. The proposed offloading facility will have both subsea and land based pipelines connecting it to storage facilities in Kipevu.
Amec Foster Wheeler’s scope of work is to provide technical support and expertise to NIRAS for the development of an engineering, procurement and construction tender package and the evaluation of tenders. Amec Foster Wheeler previously supported NIRAS with the preliminary design stage for KOT.
Roberto Penno, Group President of Amec Foster Wheeler’s Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa and Southern Europe business, said: “The relocation of the Kipevu Oil Terminal is an exciting and innovative project for Kenya Ports Authority. Having been involved in the initial design stage, we are pleased to take this project forward as it will add greatly to the port’s capacity.”
