International compressor supplier TMC Compressors of the Seas (TMC) has been awarded a contract to supply the compressed air system to Golar LNG’s Gimi FLNG vessel which will operate offshore Mauritania and Senegal.
FLNG Gimi is currently undergoing a conversion from a Moss LNG carrier to a floating LNG (FLNG) production unit at Keppel Offshore & Marine’s Shipyard in Singapore.
TMC’s scope of work includes manufacturing and delivery of seven large Smart Air compressors to be installed on board the FLNG Gimi. The company has not disclosed the value of the contract, the statement reads.
When completed, the Gimi FLNG will be stationed at a nearshore hub located on the Mauritania and Senegal maritime border as part of the first phase of the Greater Tortue / Ahmeyim project. The Gimi FLNG is designed to produce an average of approximately 2.5 million tonnes of LNG per annum.
In 2017, TMC won a contract to deliver a similar Smart Air compressed air system to Golar LNG’s FLNG Hilli Episeyo.
