ABS Group’s subsidiary, Genesis Technology Solutions Inc., has been received a contract from Golar LNG to develop an intelligent maintenance strategy for the company’s new fleet of FLNG vessels, which utilise the GoFLNG floating liquefaction technology.
As part of a fleet-wide maintenance strategy to address the safety and reliability of FLNG assets and activities, ABS Group will aid Golar LNG with implementing the Maximo computerised maintenance management system (CMMS) to support its asset management programme.
"This is an important project for ABS Group and GenesisSolutions to support our clients in the growing FLNG market,” said ABS Group CEO, Todd Grove. “To maximise the value to our client, GenesisSolutions will collaborate closely with our Offshore Services team throughout development of this maintenance strategy, building on their technical knowledge and experience in providing related robust offshore asset management solutions."
"We are pleased to work closely with Golar LNG to develop an intelligent maintenance strategy based on safety, risk and reliability for the Company’s next-generation FLNG fleet," added Rob MacArthur, ABS Group Senior Vice President, Offshore. "During the past 20 years, ABS Group has developed and documented a proven way to implement asset management programs using Maximo and other intelligent systems that help drive asset uptime and productivity while simultaneously reducing OPEX costs."
"The coming years will see Golar LNG play an important role in the gas industry," said Kenneth Ruyts, Lead FLNG Maintenance and Integrity Superintendent for Golar LNG. "We are implementing a new CMMS that will become the backbone of our Asset Management Organization, and we selected ABS Group to support the rollout of this system because of their reliable expertise in various industries, especially working with FPSO vessels, and proven model for risk-based inspection, maintenance and asset management."
