Keppel Shipyard and Black & Veatch have awarded Kongsberg Maritime the contract for the delivery of an electrical package and safety and automation system.
The package is for Golar LNG’s conversion of the ex-LNG carrier, Golar Hilli, into an FLNG unit.
Kongsberg’s technology will form the core of the integrated control and safety system (ICSS) for the new FLNG unit. In addition to providing automation and control products, the company will supply integrated engineering services to the various main contractors, as well as support installation and commissioning of the delivered systems.
Kongsberg Maritime Engineering will supply the electrical package, including high and low voltage distribution boards and transformers. Design and philosophy documents, as well as electrical analysis, will also be engineered by the company.
Stene Førsund, Executive Vice President - Global Sales and Marketing at Kongsberg Maritime, commented: “We are very proud to have been chosen as a main supplier for Golar Hilli. Like many of our recent contracts, the order for Golar Hilli covers extensive hardware, software and system engineering expertise.”
