BAE Systems Delivers Equipment for Wheatstone Gas Processing Platform

BAE Systems has completed its largest-ever Australian export shipment, delivering eight telecommunications sub-systems to Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) in Korea. The sub-systems will be integrated into the major offshore gas processing platform being built by DSME for the Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project.

Fifteen BAE Systems employees worked on the project, manufacturing the sub-systems at BAE Systems’ Holden Hill facility in South Australia.

The final export shipment was one of eight 12 metre x 2.35 metre containers and comprised thousands of individual components with step-by-step instructions to allow the customer to re-assemble the sub-systems correctly.

The BAE Systems telecommunications solution will provide more than 80 workers on the gas platform with a 20-seat cinema, a state of the art entertainment system streamed to up to 80 cabins, and video conferencing facilities – as well as voice, data, radio, radar, satellite, public address and meteorological systems.

Kim Scott, Director Land & Integrated Systems for BAE Systems, said the completion of the Wheatstone contract was a significant achievement for the company. “This contract saw the delivery of an end-to-end solution for the customer manufactured on site in South Australia – from detailed design to logistics management,” he said.

“We demonstrated our ability to safely deliver complex telecommunications systems to the oil and gas sector, using our local engineering team at an internationally competitive cost.

“We are very pleased to have had the opportunity to work with Daewoo and Chevron Australia, to create local employment opportunities and be a part of one of Australia’s largest resources projects.”
