TMC Compressors of the Seas (TMC) has won a contract from Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co. Ltd (SWS) to supply the marine compressed air system to a newbuild FPSO that the yard is constructing for SBM Offshore.
TMC’s scope of work is to provide a compressed air system consisting of four large service and instrument air compressors with associated air dryers and filters. TMC will supply the equipment to SWS in China.
This is the third newbuild FPSO that SWS will build based on SBM Offshore’s Fast4Ward hull and standardised topsides modules, which are designed to secure reliable execution and lower costs.
In January 2018, TMC was awarded the contract to supply the marine compressed air system to the first of the three FPSOs. In 2019, TMC was awarded the contract for the second Fast4Ward FPSO.
TMC has not disclosed the value of the contract.
