Invensys, Bluewater Enter Operations Management Contract
Invensys Operations Management, a global provider of technology systems, software solutions and consulting services to the manufacturing and infrastructure operations industries, has announced that it has entered a contract with Bluewater (Glas Dowr), a company specializing in the design, development, lease and operation of tanker-based production and storage systems.
Under the terms of the agreement, Invensys will update the legacy distributed control system (DCS) and safety systems aboard the Glas Dowr floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit, which will be operating approximately 170 kilometers south of the Timor-Leste coast in the Timor Sea. Invensys will supply its Foxboro I/A Series distributed control and Triconex critical control solutions, as well as fire and gas detection systems, instrumentation, smoke detection systems, cabinets and consoles. The company will also provide engineering, project management, installation, training, design, commissioning and start up services.
The Glas Dowr FPSO is leased by Eni, the largest oil and gas company in Italy. The Glas Dowr will be stationed in the Kitan oil field located between Australia and Timor-Leste. Invensys has also provided the distributed control, safety and automation systems for the Bleo Holm, the sixth Bluewater-designed, built, owned and operated FPSO.
