The offshore construction facility has direct access to the Demerara river: this enables fabricated items to be loaded onto vessels to be delivered offshore. It will feature the largest heavy lift crane in Guyana, and specialised fabrication, welding and testing equipment and a heavy load bearing jetty. All construction work for the new facility has been awarded to Guyanese contractors.
Saipem will be able to fabricate jumpers and other sophisticated subsea structures at the facility. The companywill now escalate its already ongoing training effort to include new specialisations in cooperation with recognised Guyanese organizations, schools and service providers.
Giorgio Martelli, President & CEO of Saipem America commented: “The inauguration of Saipem’s Offshore Construction Facility in Guyana will enable us to provide highly-skilled local services and support to the advantage of current and future energy projects in the country. Saipem’s commitment in Guyana is long term and this new facility is a key milestone in our relationship with this dynamic nation”.
