Bardex Corporation wins a contract from South Korea's Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) for a BOP (blowout preventer) Cage and drilling riser skidding system for operation on the Moho Nord TLP (tension leg platform) which HHI is building for Total for operation offshore Congo-Brazzaville.
"The Bardex skidding system comprises two hydraulic gripper jacks each of 75 tons push-pull capacity powered by a 30 hp (horsepower) hydraulic power unit, approved for use in ATEX Zone 1 hazardous area," Bardex said in a press release.
HHI reported March 26 that it has clinched the $700 million order for a TLP from Total. The company will carry out engineering, procurement, supply, construction and commissioning of the TLP to be deployed in Moho Nord field, 49.7 miles (80 kilometers) off the Republic of Congo's coast.
