Semco Maritime to equip Energean Power FPSO with telecommunication and firefighting systems
- Business & Finance
TechnipFMC has chosen Semco Maritime to deliver telecommunication systems, topside firefighting equipment and safety equipment for the Energean Power FPSO for the Energean-operated Karish & Tanin fields, offshore Israel.
As a total systems integrator Semco Maritime will be delivering more than 20 telecommunication systems including detailed engineering, procurement, construction, integrated in-house system testing, installation supervision and commissioning, Semco Maritime said in a statement on Thursday.
The telecommunication systems include PAGA system, access control, CCTV and entertainment, Trunked Radio systems, telephone communication and data networks.
The customized fire protection package consists of several water/foam deluge skids, hydrants including cabinets with foam, hoses and handheld nozzles, oscillating foam monitors and mixed ancillary firefighting and suppression equipment for the topside of the vessel.
Semco Maritime’s subsidiary in Singapore handles the project with support from in-house telecommunication and firefighting experts in Denmark and Norway.
“We are pleased that TechnipFMC has chosen us to equip the ‘Energean Power’ FPSO with telecommunication and firefighting systems. Our global presence enables us to work closely with the front-end engineering and design contractor as well as the Sembcorp Marine yard in Singapore. This saves time and minimizes risks which have been of paramount importance in this project,” says Martin Just, Vice President at Semco Maritime Pte Ltd. in Singapore.
The FAT-tested equipment will be delivered and installed during 2019, the company said.
The Karish & Tanin natural gas fields are located in the Levant Basin of the Mediterranean Sea, approximately 90 km offshore Israel. Both fields are leased and operated by Energean Israel. First gas from this deep-water gas development project is expected in 2021.
The Karish and Tanin development was sanctioned in March 2018. Energean has contracted TechnipFMC under a turnkey, lump sum EPCIC contract to provide the full suite of FPSO and SURF services during the construction phase and TechnipFMC has subcontracted COSCO to provide the FPSO hull.
The first steel was cut at the COSCO yard in Zhoushan, China, on November 26, 2018. Hull completion is expected to take 12 months. The hull will then travel to the Sembcorp Admiralty Yard in Singapore for installation of the Siemens-built topsides. Energean expects the FPSO to sail away from Singapore in late 2020 ahead of first gas in 2021.
