Mechanical engineering group, EnerMech, has completed a joint hose management and crane refurbishment contract on the Glas Dowr FPSO in Singapore on behalf of Bluewater Energy Services. The five month contract covered ongoing hose management, including inspection and replacement of hoses on the topside of the Glas Dowr, which is chartered to Eni for operations in the Kitan Field, located in the Timor Sea approximately 250km south of the Timor-Leste capital of Dili and 500km north of the Australian coast. The refurbishment of the vessel’s starboard and port cranes and two lifeboat davits on both port and starboard sides completed the workscope.
EnerMech performed the workscope at the Sembawang shipyard and at its recently opened base in Singapore, utilising new in-house hose management facilities, including cutting, crimping and testing equipment. EnerMech’s regional director for Asia Pacific, John Guy, said: “Our recent investment in new facilities in Singapore and in the latest equipment, such as our in-house hose management suite, allowed us to deliver the fast response and quick mobilisation required by the client.
“We also have a competitive edge in being able to provide multiple service lines which can be integrated in to one contract, in this case for hose management and crane refurbishment services. It is the first time we have worked with Bluewater in Singapore and we hope it will be the start of a long lasting business relationship.”
