In 2013 Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) won the order to build the EGINA FPSO for the French Oil giant, Total. At the time the EGINA was the largest FPSO in the world featuring a length of 330 meters, a width of 64 meters and height of 34 meters. SHI subsequently selected the Solartech International Ltd product SOLARCLAD as the preferred GRP protection cladding system to be applied on all insulated pipes and fittings on the EGINA FPSO.
Approximately 45,000 square meters of SolarClad material was utilized. Solartech international Ltd in association with their Korea agent, Daeyoung Intec, supplied technical assistance and applicator training throughout the project.
The EGINA sailed from SHI yard on 31st October 2017 destined for Lagos, Nigeria where various topsides fabrication and integration is to be completed before the FPSO is installed in the Egina Offshore field around 200 KMS off the Nigerian coast.
The FPSO is expected to be deployed during second half of 2018, once the remaining topside module and commissioning works are completed.
