Topaz completes Vopak Fujairah extension

Dubai: Topaz Energy and Marine reports that it has just completed construction of Berths 5 and 6 at the Vopak terminal in Fujairh safely without any lost time injury and within the agreed project schedule. The work on Vopak Horizon Fujairah Limited Phase 5 - Marine Extension Project was carried out through its subsidiary Nico International Hydrospace, part of the newly established Topaz Engineering division.

The subcontract was awarded in November 2008 and Topaz's scope for the construction of Berth 5 and 6 included detailed engineering of complete piping and mechanical equipment, structural fabrication and installation including painting and pre-commissioning.

Bill Bayliss, COO of Topaz Engineering said, "Topaz has been a partner of Vopak Horizon Fujairah Limited on several recent projects and hopes to build on the relationship for future project awards. Because of our experience of operating in Fujairah, a strong HSE track record and comprehensive technical capabilities we're well placed to deliver large scale oil and gas projects in Fujairah."

Topaz is currently executing several other projects in Fujairah including EPC contracts for the Port of Fujairah, Fujairah Refinery and Vopak Horizon Fujairah Limited. With its newly commissioned 30,000 m² fabrication facility in Fujairah, Topaz aims to capture a significant share of Fujairah's future oil storage terminal construction market. [18/01/10]
