ABB to Power Total's Mozambique LNG Project
Swiss-listed engineering firm ABB has won a contract from the engineering, procurement, construction and installation contractors to supply the electrical systems for French Total's 13mn metric tons/yr Mozambique LNG Project, it said March 18. It did not say what the contract, awarded by the McDermott-Chiyoda-Saipem joint venture CCS, was worth.
ABB’s 26-month project will entail building large prefabricated electrical substation buildings, designed for oil and gas applications, in Singapore and transporting them to the site. The company will also integrate its electrical control and power management systems.
ABB's vice president for oil and gas Johan de Villiers said: “We have optimised and customised our solutions to meet the specific technical and capital expenditure requirements of the customer. With ABB as the main original equipment manufacturer for electrical systems, Mozambique LNG Project will benefit in terms of cost-efficiency, maintenance, service as well as upgrades and expansions.”
