Tractebel claims it was awarded the contract due to its prior successful collaboration with AES on the Costa Norte LNG Terminal in 2015 – 2017 (Panama).
According to the statement, the project consists of an additional LNG storage tank, additional vaporisation facilities and two additional truck loading bays. AES’s approach is to drive multiple competitive FEEDs, and then select the most suitable one. Based on these studies, each engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) bidder will propose its EPC price.
Tractebel claims that its role is to support AES Andres DR during this phase of the project and until selection of the EPC contractor.
The Tractebel senior project manager said: “This new contract, awarded on basis of successful collaboration Tractebel and AES had on their previous LNG Project in Panama, demonstrates once more the confidence AES has in Tractebel, and its trust in Tractebel expertise and reactivity. The success of this phase is particularly important for Tractebel, as we aim to be awarded the next phase (owner’s engineering during EPC execution).”
