Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co. Ltd (SWS) has awarded a contract to supply the marine compressed air system to a newbuild FPSO that the yard is constructing for SBM Offshore to TMC Compressors of the Seas (TMC). TMC has not disclosed the value of the contract.
By way of background, in January 2018, TMC was awarded the contract to supply the marine compressed air system to the first of the three FPSOs. In 2019, TMC was then awarded the contract for the second Fast4Ward FPSO.
This is the third newbuild FPSO that SWS will build based on SBM Offshore’s Fast4Ward hull and standardised topsides modules, which are designed to secure reliable execution and lower costs.
TMC will supply the equipment to SWS in China. TMC said in the release its scope of work “is to provide a compressed air system consisting of four large service and instrument air compressors with associated air dryers and filters”.
