Harland & Wolff has been awarded a GBP 61m base contract to deliver the mid-life upgrade contract of the SeaRose Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel.
The contract is with Cenovus Energy.
The vessel is expected to arrive at the company’s Belfast Yard in early 2024 and will be in the Building Dock for over three months.
Several pre-arrival works have already commenced in Belfast, these include inspections, procurement of steel, fabrication of customised blocks and other dry dock operations. Further fabrication has begun to ensure the yard is fully prepared to commence refurbishment and upgrade works effectively and efficiently as soon as the vessel arrives next year.
It is expected that 1,000 personnel will be on-site in Belfast, allowing synergy between programmes as Harland & Wolff continues to ramp up to deliver the GBP 1.6bn Fleet Solid Support programme as part of Team Resolute.
