Dutch group to study replacement of piping systems on Das Island
- Tebodin wins three offshore and refinery contracts in Abu Dhabi
- Work will be on Das Island and the Zakum field, as well as a refinery at Ruwais
Engineering group Tebodin has been awarded three contracts on offshore and refinery projects in Abu Dhabi, according to a source familiar with the schemes.
The facilities on Das Island include oil and gas processing, storage and export facilities, utilities, and power generation, some of which have ageing piping systems.
Tebodins study will be carried out in several phases, with 10 critical lines recommended for phase one of the project. The initial stage is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2015.
Zadco plans to build a new substation next to the existing service area substation on Zirku Island to accommodate a new transformer and low-voltage switchgear.
Tebodin was appointed as the feed contractor after successfully completing a study on the project for Zadco.
During the expansion of the general utility plant (GUP) which powers the entire Takreer complex and refinery plants, electrical system studies were carried out considering the unit expansions individually.
However, due to power failures in certain facilities, Takreer is now planning a comprehensive system study.
The scope includes electrical data collection validation, modelling the network data, data entry and conducting the power system studies for the complete network of Takreer in Ruwais.
