Clough today announced that Sunrise Energy has awarded CMR Marine, part of Clough, the Saldanha Bay LPG Import Terminal contract for the construction of the marine facilities and overland pipeline.
The scope of work includes fabrication, installation and commissioning of a five kilometre long LPG pipeline. The marine facilities will enable vessels to offload LPG to an onshore facility, via a three kilometre subsea pipeline. The overland pipeline includes a shore crossing and a two kilometre pipeline to connect with the Sunrise plant infrastructure.
Engineering and procurement will commence immediately from CMR Marine’s Cape Town office, with construction teams mobilising to the Saldanha Bay site in April 2016. At peak the project will employ 100 people.
Clough Chief Executive Officer Peter Bennett said “CMR Marine will draw on our global oil and gas and marine construction expertise to deliver innovative construction services for Sunrise and the Saldahna Import Terminal project.
“This represents a landmark project for our business and a continuation of our international expansion strategy.”
The Saldanha LPG Import and Storage Terminal Project is a green field project located at Saldanha Bay, South Africa, 130 kilometres north of Cape Town. The terminal will import and store Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) and distribute the product throughout South Africa.
Sunrise Energy is a partnership between Ilitha Group Holdings Pty Ltd, Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) and Mining Oil and Gas Services (MOGS)
