New contracts for Aqualis (August 8th):

Aqualis Offshore has been handed the position keeping role for installation of the Egina FPSO offshore Nigeria.
EPCIC contractor for the FPSO, Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI), has awarded the position keeping work to Aqualis Offshore. The newbuild Egina FPSO was towed from South Korea and arrived in Nigeria in late January for final integration of topside modules built in Lagos.

Once the FPSO is located at the Egina field, Aqualis Offshore will manage the position keeping procedure and provide position keeping masters offshore while it is being connected to the pre-installed mooring spread. In total, the Egina FPSO will be spread moored on 16 mooring lines (4×4).

“Having last year successfully managed the position keeping roles for the Icthys Venturer FPSO and Ichthys Explorer central processing facility, we are no stranger to installing large offshore structures. We look forward to supporting SHI and Total with the Egina FPSO, which is a challenging deepwater field development,” says Phil Lenox, Director – Asia Pacific.

Total is the operator of the Egina field, which is located some 130 kilometres off the coast of Nigeria at water depths of more than 1,500 metres. The FPSO measures approximately 330m in length and is expected to have an oil storage capacity of approximately 2.3 million barrels of oil.

OWC opens office in Taiwan:

Offshore Wind Consultants (OWC), a company wholly owned by Aqualis ASA, has established a new office in Taiwan to support the fast growing Taiwanese offshore wind sector.
OWC is an independent engineering consultancy focused on the development and realisation of offshore renewables technology and projects. Offshore Wind Consultants Taiwan Co., Limited will offer offshore wind consultancy services and expertise to the Taiwanese and wider Asia Pacific markets.

“We have secured a number of jobs offshore Taiwan in the past six months. To set up a dedicated office here to be as close as possible to our clients and to contribute towards local job and value creation therefore makes perfect sense,” says Will Cleverly, managing director of OWC’s Taiwan operation.

OWC has secured contracts for providing EPC lead and installation manager roles for an offshore wind developer for a site due to come on line in 2021, and also undertaken work for other clients in the region. This has included providing consultancy services related to wind turbine installation vessels and their suitability for different wind turbines and site locations offshore Taiwan.

Prior to 2018, Taiwan had approximately 8MW wind power installed, but now has ambitions of 5.5GW to be under construction by 2025. In April this year, the Taiwanese Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) allocated grid capacity for ten new offshore wind projects.

“We believe our experience of helping clients reduce CAPEX and work with tight schedules and high risk profiles can be of value to help developers in Taiwan achieve these impressive targets,” adds Will Cleverly.

In 2017, OWC’s parent company, marine and offshore engineering consultancy Aqualis Offshore, also established an office in Taiwan to support local offshore wind and oil and gas developments. OWC’s office, based in the heart of Taipei, will work closely with the existing Aqualis Offshore branch.

“Setting up the Aqualis Offshore unit in Taiwan has been a great success. To complement our capabilities by adding the OWC offshore wind products and services will make us an even more relevant and reliable partner offshore Taiwan,” says David Wells, CEO of Aqualis Offshore.

OWC and Aqualis Offshore are both part of Oslo-listed energy consultancy group Aqualis ASA, an energy consulting group providing consultancy services to the offshore oil, gas and renewables sectors globally.
