Dockwise has executed the logistical management of 18 onshore modules for Koniambo Nickel Project in New Caledonia.
This logistical management contract, including an extended engineering and associated services scope was awarded by Hatch-Technip on behalf of Koniambo Nickel SAS, a joint venture owned by Xstrata Nickel and Societe Miniere du Sud Pacifique ("SMSP"). Hatch-Technip, based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, has been appointed as main contractor.
The transportation of the modules has been performed as multiple consecutive voyages by the Dockwise vessels.
The modules, fabricated in China, were loaded at the yard of CNOOC's construction company COOEC at Qingdao, China and have been offloaded in Vavouto, New Caledonia. The contract is one of Dockwise’s first large extended scope onshore industrial contracts. Presence in this market segment is one of the prime strategic objectives of Dockwise.
