Qingdao McDermott Wuchuan (QMW) has been awarded a module fabrication contract for Yamal LNG, a liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant being built northeast of the Yamal Peninsula in Russia.
The large contract is being performed in the QMW fabrication facility in Qingdao, China and commenced in the second quarter of 2015.
The full scope of work includes fabrication, engineering, procurement and construction including mechanical completion, pre-commissioning, weighing, and load-out. The scope of work also includes the sea-fastening of six units of onshore LNG fractionation pre-assembled unit modules of approximately 13,200 tons. Two of the modules weigh in at approximately 4,630 tons each.
“Our fabrication facility is able to deliver certainty with its unique design, in particular the mega module assembly shop which accommodates fabrication of all the modules indoors, eliminating weather disruptions,” said Leong Eng Chow, General Manager, Qingdao McDermott Wuchuan.
“LNG Process modules involve multiple disciplines including a significant amount of fireproofing, various types of insulation and architectural work. As we continue to develop our client base, the award of this important project demonstrates the confidence that our clients place in our ability to perform large, complex multi-discipline and schedule-critical fabrication projects in our Qingdao fabrication facility,” said Hugh Cuthbertson, Vice Chairman and Director, Qingdao McDermott Wuchuan.
