Penspen, an engineering and management services provider, has been awarded a contract by Zimbabwe’s national oil company Petrozim Line to deliver an engineering project for the Feruka-Harare pipeline.
Under the ten-month contract, Penspen will support Petrozim’s efforts to enhance operational efficiency of the pipeline to meet increasing petroleum products demand.
The 208km-long Feruka-Harare pipeline network, which was originally designed by Penspen, is planned to undergo operational modifications to help meet the increasing demand of petroleum products such as diesel and gasoline.
Penspen will be responsible for delivering detailed engineering and procurement support services for the pipeline project, as well as establishing a ‘series pumping’ operation at different sites across the region.
Penspen Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific Regions executive vice-president Neale Carter said: “This contract award is a testament to Penspen’s strong reputation and experience in Africa and we look forward to working with Petrozim on this exciting project.
“Penspen’s scope of work included in the project award demonstrates our range of capabilities in the region and beyond, as a leading provider of engineering services to the energy industry.”
The scope of the contract includes two new mainline pump-sets, piping modifications for the connection of new mainline pump-sets and two new power transformers to supply the new mainline pump-sets.
As part of the project, Penspen will also manage piping, instrumentation and metering skid modifications.
Additionally, the company will deliver electrical switchgear, transformers, switchboard, distribution board and a stand-by diesel generator with weatherproof enclosure and diesel. (Source: hydrocarbons)
