Kvaerner contract to the upgrading of the Kollsnes onshore gas facility

17 September 2020

Kvaerner’s main scope will be fabrication and installation of a new fourth processing train for processing of the MEG (monoethylene glycol) which arrives with the gas from the Troll reservoir and other offshore fields through subsea pipelines to shore.

The fabrication and module assembly work will take place at Kvaerner’s facility at Stord from late summer of 2021. At Stord the module will be completed and tested to the extent possible before it is shipped to Kollsnes for installation during second half of 2022.

Kvaerner’s project team will work integrated with Wood’s teams based in Sandefjord, Norway and other locations.

“Kvaerner has been a key contractor to numerous onshore process facilities, including the initial development of the Kollsnes plant in the 1990s and later modifications. We will use this expertise for the execution of this new assignment. This is also yet an example of how an onshore industry project can be more effectively executed by prefabricating large units at one of our yards before shipping a completed module, compared to stick-building the same unit at a site with more limited facilities and more extensive use of a temporary site crew. We believe there are several more opportunities for onshore projects which we can pursue”, says Sturla Magnus, Kvaerner’s executive vice president for the Process and Structures business segment.
