Angolan arm of French oil major Total has awarded a maintenance contract to energy storage equipment manufacturer and service provider Norco Group for work on several floating production, storage, and offloading facilities (FPSOs).
Norco Group Ltd are proud to announce a new maintenance contract with Total E&P Angola.
An established energy storage equipment manufacturer and service provider, Norco Group will support Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems and standby battery equipment on TEP Angola’s assets in offshore Block 17.
This includes the Dalia, Girassol, Pazflor and CLOV Floating Production, Storage and Offloading facilities (FPSOs).
Running for three years with an optional two-year extension, the contact will see Norco provide preventative maintenance as well as emergency fault response.
This latest award comes on the back of similar agreements with major operators in Ghana and Equatorial Guinea, and will run alongside an existing contract with Total E&P UK Ltd.
“We’re delighted to be able to put pen to paper on this after some serious work behind the scenes. It’s our biggest strategic step thus far into offshore West Africa, and now we’re all focussed on delivering what we’ve agreed with Total.”
Finbar Kelly (Commercial & Contracts Manager)
“It’s a testament to the work of the International Development team as well as the engineers who have serviced the contract with Total in the UK that we’ve been also now selected to work with them in Angola. I’m sure there will be logistical challenges in the current climate but we’re looking forward to proving we’re up to the task.”
