ABB to power Total-led Mozambique LNG project

A unit of Swiss engineering group ABB will deliver an end-to-end electrification package for Total’s $20 billion Mozambique LNG export project.

The project’s EPC contractor CCS JV, comprising of Saipem, McDermott and Chiyoda, awarded the contract to ABB, the firm said on Thursday.

ABB said the project would last around 26 months and the firm would deliver “comprehensive integrated and intelligent electrical systems” for the east-African LNG development.

These include fourteen large onshore electrical houses or prefabricated electrical substation buildings.

The firm’s team in Singapore will build these houses and ship them to the Mozambique LNG project site at the Afungi complex in Palma in northern Mozambique.

The company would also integrate its electrical control and power management system alongside 110kV gas-insulated switchgears, medium voltage switchgears (33kV, 11kV) and low voltage switchgears, it said.

To remind, Total’s chief executive Patrick Pouyanne said last month the project was still on track to produce LNG in 2024 despite security concerns in the region.

The CEO said the project had reached a 21 percent completion at the end of last year.

The project includes the development of offshore gas fields in Mozambique’s Area 1 and a 12.8 mtpa liquefaction plant at the Afungi complex.

In addition, the project will also have a fleet of dedicated LNG carriers.

Besides Total, other partners in the project are Japan’s Mitsui, Mozambique’s ENH, Thailand’s PTT, and Indian firms ONGC, Bharat Petroleum, and Oil India.
