Applus+, through its division Applus+ RTD, has been awarded a trio of contracts worth an estimated US$17.3 million (AUS$22.5 million) for work on the Ichthys LNG project’s onshore LNG facilities.
The contracts were awarded by Laing O’Rourke Australia, Monadelphous Engineering Associates and UGL Kentz JV. The contracts will see Applus+ RTD provide inspection engineering, asset integrity management and advanced nondestructive testing services on two LNG tanks, one LPG tank, one butane tank and two OBSL and ISBL mechanicals.
Applus+ RTD’s Rayscan Tankscan will be used throughout the three-year contracts, which is the first time the technology will be deployed in Australia, and only the second time worldwide. The system provides digital radiographic inspection system that can complete a full inspection of LNG storage tanks in a single scan, producing a high-quality image of each weld.
The contract will also see Applus+ RTD provide maintenance for the anticipated 40-year life cycle of the plant, with an expected team of 60 working on the project at peak times, a combination of new and existing staff.
