Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) tapped Wärtsilä Moss to supply inert gas generator (IGG) units for the FPSO destined for the Inpex-operated Ichthys LNG project in the Browse Basin offshore western Australia.
Wärtsilä Moss' scope of supply is two identical IGG skids for installation in a hazardous area, to prevent risk of explosion, forming part of the topside module with pressure vacuum breakers and control systems as loose supply for installation by the South Korean shipyard.
The IGG units for the Ichthys project are installed to serve the primary operation of the FPSO, to transfer condensate to tankers for delivery to markets. The topside modules are surface installations which allow the drilling and/or production and/or processing of offshore hydrocarbons.
Gas from the Ichthys field will undergo preliminary processing offshore to remove water and extract condensate and the gas will be transported to onshore processing facilities in Darwin through an 889km-long subsea pipeline.
The vessel is due for delivery in April 2016.
