Kongsberg Maritime secures position in the LNG market with electrical and automation contract for Golar Hilli FLNG
Keppel Shipyard in Singapore and Black & Veatch in the U.S. have awarded Kongsberg Maritime an order for the delivery of an electrical package and safety and automation system for Golar LNG’s conversion of the ex-LNG Carrier Golar Hilli to an FLNG (Floating Liquefied Natural Gas production unit).
Kongsberg Maritime’s technology will be the backbone of the Integrated Control and Safety System (ICSS) for the new FLNG. In addition to automation and control products, Kongsberg Maritime will participate with integrated engineering services to the various main contractors and support installation and commissioning of the delivered systems.
Kongsberg Maritime Engineering will supply the electrical package including high and low voltage distribution boards and transformers. In addition, design and philosophy documents, and electrical analysis will be engineered by Kongsberg Maritime.
According to Kongsberg, the order demonstrates its capabilities and position within topside and marine automation for offshore oil and gas production units, reflected in the market through significant contract wins. It also demonstrates its capabilities within the total LNG value chain.
