Oslo based compressor supplier TMC Compressors said it has won a contract to supply the marine compressed air system for a new floating production storage and offloading unit (FPSO) currently being built in China for Dutch firm SBM Offshore.

 
TMC was contracted by Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co., Ltd (SWS) to provide a compressed air system consisting of 4 x 400 kW service air compressors with associated air dryers and filters to the shipbuilder’s yard in Shanghai. The contract value is undisclosed.
 
“There seems to be a recovery under way in floating production market. Encouragingly, TMC’s marine compressors are increasingly being selected for major FPSO developments,” said Per Kjellin, managing director of TMC Compressors.
 
“The SWS yard clearly stated that they want equipment that has been specifically developed for marine applications – not land-based compressors that have been marinized. We are very thankful for yards that choose to have a life-of-field quality focus which goes over and beyond their contractual obligations for newbuilds,” Kjellin said.
