MODEC has ordered two new FWPPs, which will be the largest ever built at Hamworthy Pumps’ plant in Singapore.

Hamworthy Pumps has just secured a large, new offshore contract for delivery in June 2021. MODEC Offshore Production Systems (Singapore) Pte Ltd. has ordered two Fire Water Pump Packages (FWPP) for a Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit.

“This will be one of the biggest packages ever designed and built at our Singapore plant,” says Account Manager Lim Gee Wee.

“The more common flow capacity for such a configuration is between 1,800 and 2,200 m3/hr. For this project the flow capacity is 2,700 m3/hr,” he explains.

A competitive and reliable supplier

MODEC is one of the leading suppliers of production platforms to the offshore oil & gas market and has been using pump solutions from Hamworthy Pumps for years. The current order underlines the strong relationship between the two companies.

“MODEC has been a customer with us for a long time and considers us to be a reliable supplier that is able to meet their strict technical requirements. They know that we are competitive on price and quality and that we always live up to our obligations,” says Lim Gee Wee.

The new FPSO has been ordered by Woodside Energy and is to be commissioned as the first of its kind in Senegalese waters in early 2023. The FPSO will be capable of processing 100,000 barrels of crude oil per day, 130 million standard cubic feet of gas per day and 145,000 barrels of water injection per day. It will have a minimum storage capacity of 1,300,000 barrels of crude oil.


Highly customised – designed and built for your safety

An FWPP solution from Hamworthy Pumps is highly customised and designed to be self-contained according to NFPA 20 regulations, while also meeting the operational requirements of the marine, offshore and onshore markets. All types of FWPP configurations are full string tested at the Singapore location.
