Roxtec, the provider of cables and pipe seals, has delivered cable transits for the 488 m long hull of Shell’s Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility, currently under construction at Samsung Heavy Industries’ yard in South Korea.
Roxtec cable transits are used in deck/bulkheads onboard the Prelude FLNG in order to ensure safety, efficiency and operational reliability. The company has also secured orders for topside and turret scopes.
Roxtec Global Segment Manager Offshore Oil & Gas, Fredrik Timonen, commented: “Being the first of its kind, and a project in which the entire oil and gas industry is interested, this is a fantastic reference. It is expected that several similar projects will follow within near future, and we are well positioned to win these due to our experienced global team, technical knowledge and relations with the leading players.”
According to Shell, Prelude FLNG will unlock new energy resources offshore and produce approximately 3.6 million tpa of LNG to meet the growing demand.
