Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co (DSME) contracted Wärtsilä Moss AS to supply inert gas generator units to a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit for the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG project in the Browse Basin, approximately 200km off western Australia.
The vessel is due for delivery in April 2016; it will comply with strict Australian environmental standards and has a projected lifespan of 40 years. The Ichthys Project is the largest oil and gas development in the Northern Territory and will deliver significant social and economic benefits to Australia.
Wärtsilä Moss’ scope of supply is two identical inert gas generator skids for installation in a hazardous area, to prevent risk of explosion, forming part of the topside module with PV Breakers and control systems as loose supply for installation by the South Korean shipyard. The contract was signed with DSME in September 2012.
