About two years ago, joint venture owners Origin Energy and AWE agreed on a substantial mid-life enhancement (MLE) project that would see the conversion of a usually unmanned platform located in Australia’s Bass Strait, into a manned facility – the opposite of what normally happens with offshore oil and gas fields.
New Plymouth-based Fitzroy Engineering Group (FEGL) subsequently won the significant engineering procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the Yolla Module, after a global search, to design and build the facility which provides accommodation for up to 44 people. The complete module complex incorporates bunk-rooms, a state of the art kitchen, mess hall, laundry, gymnasium, offices, associated power and water facilities and even fire fighting installation.
With your help, we were able to pull in all the resources we needed to complete the challenging project on budget and on schedule.
