From 16 to 19 January, four staff from TVA Engineering attended a 4-day training session on the ETAP Power Station 16.2 software delivered by the ETAP Automation France training body. The software is used to design HV/LV electrical installations.
This training initiative reflects TVA Engineering’s desire to develop not only the competences of its electricity department but also its staff’s skills. For TVA Engineering, staff training is essential to ensuring its long-term competitiveness.
At the end of last year, one of our existing clients, Perenco, commissioned us to carry out detailed electricity studies related to the use of Gabon East OroVinyare’s offshore zone, which Perenco acquired rights to in 2012.
Perenco operates nine oil fields in Gabon, six offshore and three onshore, which makes the Franco-British operator Gabon’s top oil producer in Gabon, producing almost 100,000 barrels a day.
This initiative reflects Perenco’s ongoing desire to work with TVA Engineering, despite the currently uncertain climate in the oil and gas industry.
On behalf of Maurel & Prom, TVA Engineering carried out the “construction and fit-out” studies for its project to increase electricity production at the ONAL power plant in Ezanga, Gabon.
These studies were completed in July 2017 and TVA Engineering was then entrusted with completion of commissioning operations, setting up a dozen contractors at the site.
After more than four months of commissioning and tests, Maurel & Prom’s new plant began production on 3 December 2017 and is currently in the reliability phase.
