Calder to provide pump package for North Sea project

Norwegian EPCI contractor Rosenberg WorleyParsons AS has selected PG Flow Solutions subsidiary Calder Ltd to supply a MEG pump package for the Nova tie-back to the Gjøa platform in the North Sea.

Nova operator Wintershall is developing the field with two subsea modules tied back to the Neptune Energy-operated Gjøa platform.

Rosenberg WorleyParsons is responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) of the Nova topside module on the Gjøa platform.

Operating as a subcontractor to Rosenberg WorleyParsons, liquid handling and pump specialist Calder will deliver a MEG (mono ethylene glycol) package that consists of several high pressure pumps including MEG subsea injection pump, MEG jockey pump, MEG topside injection pump and MEG booster return pump plus spare parts for installation, commissioning and start-up.

The MEG package will be engineered, assembled and skid mounted at Calder’s facility in Worcester, UK, and delivered to Rosenberg WorleyParsons’ yard in Stavanger, Norway in the first quarter of 2019.

The successful bid was a joint team effort between PG Flow Solutions operations in Sande, Norway, and Worcester, UK.

“Winning the contract for the Nova MEG injection packages is a confirmation that our joint teams in UK and Norway are matching the Norwegian offshore contractors’ productivity improvements while maintaining our market leading quality standards,” said Peter Elton, managing director of Calder.
