Aibel Cuts First Steel for Topside Modules for Tullow's TEN Project

Aibel Thailand cut first steel for topside modules for the Tweneboa, Enyenra and Ntomme (TEN) project for MODEC, Inc. Friday at subcontractor Deeline Construction Co., Ltd’s fabrication shop in Rayong, Thailand.

“At exactly 9.19 am MODEC's Jeff Knox activated a plate cutting machine that cut the first steel plate in the project. This ceremony was followed by guest speeches,” Aibel Thailand’ Managing Director Jim Ryan said in the press release.

The contract for the topside procurement and fabrication of the TEN project with MODEC was signed in February. Aibel Thailand is delivering seven modules with a weight of 9,400 tons to the floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel.

“We are pleased to continue our good relationship with MODEC. Aibel has also successfully delivered modules in the projects Tupi, Guara and OSX3,” Ryan explained.

Upon completion, the modules will be transported from Aibel’s yard in Laem Chabang, Thailand to Singapore where they will be integrated on a FPSO. The end client is Tullow Ghana Ltd. The FPSO will operate in deep waters off Ghana, West Africa.
