Yokogawa wins supply bid on major gas project

Yokogawa Australia has won a supply bid from Bechtel for integrated control and safety systems for the Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project west of Onslow in WA.

The contract, which is worth approximately $20 million, will see the majority of the manufacturing work completed at Yokogawa facilities in Australia.

Yokogawa will be supplying the Centum-VP integrated production control system, the ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system and Plant Resource Manager (PRM), and the plant asset management system for the two LNG trains with a combined capacity of 8.9 million tonnes per annum.

This supply win follows Yokogawa's involvement in the upstream portion of the Wheatstone Project where Yokogawa was awarded the supply of control systems for the control and safety systems for the subsea controllers and the topside offshore infrastructure.

Yokogawa Australia's managing director, John Hewitt said the latest Bechtel supply win underscored the recognised competence and experience of Yokogawa Australia in major LNG projects.

"Yokogawa Australia is developing into a centre of excellence for LNG projects as measured by total gas train capacity which will be controlled by Yokogawa's Vigilant Plant system," noted Hewitt.

"Each project comes with its individual challenges and Yokogawa has responded by tailoring solutions including involvement in the front end engineering and design of these key installations and supply of engineering design, fully integrated control systems and precision instrumentation.

"We are also an active participant in the Australian Industry Participation Plan and have both involved and enabled local product and service suppliers to work with Yokogawa on these major projects, utilising the services of the Industry Capability Network (ICN) network around Australia," said Hewitt.

Bechtel is contracted to Chevron to provide engineering, procurement and construction services for the downstream portion of the Wheatstone Project.
