Thursday, August 29, 2013

Wilhelmsen Technical Solutions has secured multiple orders to supply its Maritime Protection Inert Gas Generator (IGG) systems for installation on vessels working offshore Brazil.

The company will deliver a total of eight dual-fuel Maritime Protection systems via contracting partner EEP to Brazil’s national oil company Petrobras for installation onboard a quartet of Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCCs) being converted to Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessels.

The conversion of the VLCC hulls is scheduled take place in the Estaleiro Inhauma drydock where the IGG equipment, capable of operation both on marine diesel oil/gas oil and natural gas, will be installed. Once completed, the FPSOs will operate in the deepwater ‘pre-salt’ Santos Basin fields, 200km south of Rio de Janeiro.

This order is in addition to two similar systems delivered last year, and makes Brazil an increasingly important market for WTS, the company said, which will deliver the eight dual-fuel units between December 2013 and September 2014.
