The Gbaran Phase 3A project is an infill project aimed at sustaining gas supply to Shell facilities and the domestic gas markets. The substation will be delivered to the so called Enwhe field.
VONK and its Turkish supply chain partners almost finished the fabrication and outfitting of two more or less similar fully welded prefabricated substations. The substations are both equipped with medium and low voltage switchgear as well as an uninterruptable power supply system.
The fabrication started in the second half of 2020 under challenging circumstances.
The pandemic forced us to conduct intermediate remote video inspections assisted by local welding expects and NACE inspectors. This enables our client to witness the inspections from their bases in Nigeria. The outfitting of the substation progressing well and the final acceptance test is scheduled for early February 2021 after which the substations starts its journey to their final destination.
