Roxtec Cable Transits for World’s Largest FLNG Facility
Cable and pipe seal provider Roxtec has delivered cable transits for the 488-meter long hull of Shell’s Prelude FLNG (floating liquefied natural gas) facility that is under construction at the Samsung Heavy Industries.
Roxtec cable transits are used in deck/bulkheads onboard the Prelude FLNG in order to ensure safety, efficiency and operational reliability. Roxtec has also secured orders for topside and turret scopes.
“Being the first of its kind, and a project in which the entire oil and gas industry is interested, this is a fantastic reference,” says Fredrik Timonen, Global Segment Manager Offshore Oil & Gas at Roxtec. “It is expected that several similar projects will follow within near future, and we are well positioned to win these due to our experienced global team, technical knowledge and relations with the leading players.”
Once complete, Prelude FLNG will be the largest floating facility ever built.
