12 modules at once

With both the P-74 and TEN projects in the final phase, Aibel’s yard in Thailand is buzzing with activity.

The recent year’s hard work has proven some very visible achievements at Aibel’s yard in Laem Chabang. A total of 12 modules are currently under construction for the projects TEN and P-74.

The TEN project
Through the TEN (Tweneoba, Enyenra and Ntomme) project for Modec, Aibel is responsible for the fabrication of seven modules with an overall weight of approx. 10,000 tonnes.

Project manager Dr. Chalermsak Leaipailote proudly announces that the project is well on track. All main decks have been assembled. The second floor installation is ongoing, including structure and piping work, installation of electrical systems, communications systems and other equipment, as well as surface protection.

 “The quality is excellent. Recently, we also celebrated exemplary HSE results in the project at our subcontractor Deeline,” the project manager says.  

About one million man-hours have been carried out in the project so far. At the moment, about half of the total scope remains.

The P-74 project
In the P-74 project, Aibel is to deliver a total of five modules to client Estaleiro de Brasil (EBR). The contract was awarded in July 2013, and includes both procurement and fabrication.

The project is now in its final stage. During the course of winter, all five modules are scheduled for sail away.

“All main structure installations have been completed. Installation of piping now represents the major part of the remaining scope,” says project manager Thanakorn Wankanapol. 

In October, the project celebrated 1.4 million man-hours without lost time incidents. 

“For the conclusion of the project, we will work hard to maintain our good HSE results and to make sure that all our deliveries meet the expected quality,” the project manager says.
