During the month of February, the commissioning team of the TVA Group has performed work for Maurel & Prom on the sites of Onal and Gweddi. This involved three missions:
- The provisional switch-over of Deutz generation to Aggreko generation in the framework of increasing the water injection capacities of the site;
- The electrical connection between the ONAL 400 and ONAL 600 platforms;
- The start-up of the ESP pump on the existing wells via a new ESP 100kVA cabin.
In all these missions, we provided our know-how to the teams from Maurel & Prom, Bossard, Flowserve and ABB. The Maurel & Prom management has congratulated all of the participants for their involvement in these projects and maintains its confidence in us for the follow on of the commissioning.
After FOXTROT who recently awarded us an EPC contract for the supply of a Black-Start unit, it is the turn of SARA to place its confidence in us for a new EPC.
The company SARA (Société Anonyme de Raffinerie des Antilles), which TVA has worked with for more than ten years, has awarded us the contract for revamping the High Voltage (5.5 kV) switchgear. Installed in sub-station no. 1, it supplies the electrical consumers of its refinery situated in Lamentin, Martinique.
The new switchgear shall be comprised of 14 French-made, Schneider brand MCset reference cells. It will also be equipped with SEPAM digital protection relays. Acceptance of the installations shall take place at the end of October 2017.
