VONK has been awarded a contract with Bapetco in Egypt. The Bapetco Bed 3 plant is a gas compression/treatment station for the production of gas which feeds the power plants that supply electricity to the grid of Egypt. This implies that availability and uptime of the plant are key.

The production equipment is being renewed and expanded which requires a new electrical infrastructure. VONK will execute a study to renew the electrical infrastructure supplying the new demanded power. The implementation shall be phased by making use of opportunity shutdowns per unit.

VONK is pleased to announce that it has formalized its Cooperation Agreement with Wehaya, a Bumiputera Engineering Company in Malaysia. Wehaya is mainly known for its Maintenance, Installation and Construction activities in the disciplines E&I and C&A in the Malaysian Oil & Gas market.

In the cooperation, VONK will add value by jointly executing complete projects, including: Hybrid Power Facilities, Brownfield C&A plant upgrades, and virtualization of the plant’s control systems.

VONK has signed a cooperation agreement with Collectric to provide technical support in delivering clean mobility solutions to owners and operators of commercial real estate, covering electric vehicle charging, on site generation and car sharing to enhance sustainability performance of buildings and meet tenants’ clean mobility needs.

This will be a strategic move into the field of clean electric mobility for VONK. We are excited to partner with Collectric and support them in their mission to provide infrastructure solutions that accelerate the clean mobility and energy transition.

VONK service and commissioning engineers have been deployed at Dubai Drydocks to support the vessel owner to extend and overhaul the existing low and high voltage system onboard the FPSO, for both vessel and topside.

The works on the FPSO are in their final stages, with sea trials expected to commence at the end of this month and sail away to follow shortly thereafter. The FPSO will be moored offshore on the coast of Scotland and operated by a UK-based oil and gas company.

In the beginning of September, VONK dispatched two generator control cabinets as replacement of the existing cabinets at our client’s power plant on the British Virgin Islands, since the replacement parts had become obsolete.

The scope of work included designing, manufacturing, and programming of the PLC system.

The two new cabinets will be put in operation by our engineers later this year. The client also intends to replace the control cabinets of four other generators at their facility in Pockwood within the next two years.

VONK recently agreed on a three years framework agreement with Basrah Gas Company (“BGC”) of Iraq for various services and engineering to mainly support the delivery and maintenance of Process Automation Systems (PAS) across client’s various facilities in Southern Iraq. BGC’s main assets are in West Qurna, North Rumaila, Khor Al Zubair and Um Qasr. The aim of the project is to bring the existing BGC’s assets back to the original design intent. VONK shall be responsible for the design, on behalf of procurement services and putting into operation of new and upgraded process automation systems.

ISO 9001: 2015 CERTIFIED

Vonk successfully passed the ISO9001 audit as per the latest (2015) release. The external audit was carried out on 18 and 19 July 2018. Bureau Veritas, an independent certification body, confirmed that VONK meets all quality system management requirements under ISO 9001:2015. No non-conformities were identified.

Vonk has been awarded by a Nigerian EPC contractor for the design, fabrication of two prefabricated double section substations for the Egbema West project. The EGBEMA West field is located some 75 km North of Port Harcourt and operated by Nigeria Petroleum Development Company (NPDC). The substations (Egbema-West AG & Egbema-West NAG) will accommodate the electrical distribution systems, both covers an area of approx. 7,5 by 16 meters. The substations shall be ready for dispatch in the first half of 2019.

VONK has been awarded for the design, fabrication and partly outfitting of a Field Auxiliary Room (FAR) by one of its West African clients. The blast resilient and A60 fire resistant FAR consist of two sections and covers an area of 16 by 6,5 meter. The unit will accommodate a PAS system, a SYS system, a telecom system, a F&G system, compressor & refrigeration control units and a metering system. The FAR is in an early stage of fabrication and the unit and scheduled to be ready for dispatch in the third quarter of 2018.

The Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij (NAM) is de-complexing large platforms. These platforms have facilities like gas treatment skids and helicopter decks. NAM is simplifying these large platforms to unmanned offshore locations.

VONK developed a sustainable integrated energy system with solar panels for these modernized platforms. NAM got into dialogue with VONK early 2016 and in close cooperation we developed in 6 months a unique self-sufficient and self-controlled system that supplies the platform with green energy. For 85 % of the time solar energy will feed the platform. Very small diesel generators feed the platform the remaining 15 % of the time. The system developed by VONK will reduce Operational Expenditure due to the reduced maintenance requirement, a visit once a year is sufficient for the platform to operate safely and reliable.

The system also reduces CO2 exhaust by 85%. The complete system is set up for testing at the premises of VONK.

NAM and VONK are pleased to show you the innovation which contributes to a green and safe gas production at sea.
