Tamrotor Marine Compressors (TMC) has won a contract for an undisclosed sum to equip a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel being constructed in China.
The Norway-headquartered firm has been awarded the work from Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co. (SWS) for work on a new FPSO being built for Dutch firm SBM Offshore.
TMC will provide a compressed air system to be supplied to SWS’ yard in Shanghai.
Per Kjellin, managing director of TMC Compressors, said: “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.
“The SWS yard clearly stated that they want equipment that has been specifically developed for marine applications – not land-based compressors that have been marinised.
“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.”
