Norsafe to supply lifeboats for Eni’s Coral South FLNG

Norwegian provider of  lifesaving systems Norsafe has secured its largest ever offshore contract to supply lifesaving appliances to Eni’s Coral South floating LNG (FLNG) facility, off Mozambique. 

The unit will be located in Area 4, approximately 50 km from the Mozambique coast.

Norsafe said that the order is to deliver 8 freefall systems containing 5 x GES 50 MKIII with HD-50 davits and 3 x GES 45 with HD-45 davits, to the FLNG facility under construction by Samsung Heavy Industries.

The davits will be delivered in November 2018 and the lifeboats in February 2021, the company further said.

The GES 50 MKIII freefall lifeboat will take up to 70 persons and can drop from a height of 47 meters with the GES 45 taking up to 60 persons, having a maximum drop height of 40 meters.

Combined with other large orders secured recently, this means that the company has booked more than 100 million NOK in July, Norsafe noted.

“I am delighted that Norsafe has secured such a prestigious contract to supply the first FLNG facility in Africa. It is testament to the dedication and hard work of our global teams that we have managed to secure so much business this year,” said Dag Songedal, CEO for Norsafe.

The Italian oil company, Eni, sanctioned the Coral South FLNG project back in June. Eni then awarded a contract for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation, commissioning and start-up (EPCIC) of the Coral South FLNG facility and its associated risers and subsea flowlines system, as well as the installation of the umbilicals and subsea equipment to TechnipFMC, together with JGC Corporation and Samsung Heavy Industries, all partners in the TJS Consortium where TechnipFMC is the leader.
