Axess Group wins inspection contract with MODEC for FPSO Léopold Sédar Senghor
MOLDE, Norway, February 6, 2024 – Axess Group has won a long-term inspection contract with MODEC for FPSO Léopold Sédar Senghor in Senegal.
This contract follows the completion of several baseline surveys in China and Singapore during the construction phase. The scope of work includes annual certification scopes for lifting gear, DROPS surveys, remedial actions and support with all rigging operations.
As part of its commitment to sustainable growth, Axess Gainde Senegal is concurrently initiating a training programme for local engineers and technicians in Senegal, designed to equip them with the skills and knowledge necessary for effective collaboration on projects with MODEC and other clients. As part of the programme, they will visit other entities within Africa for knowledge exchange and exposure to the Axess culture, which is important for building an emerging entity. With a robust local team, the necessity for international mobilisations is effectively mitigated – a key strategy employed by Axess to minimise carbon footprint globally.
“This contract holds great significance for us as it is our first major engagement in Senegal since the establishment of the office in 2022. We are delighted to have earned the trust of MODEC, allowing us to contribute to the country’s inaugural oil development. On a global scale, we have worked on 11 of their assets in the last five years, underscoring our commitment to delivering added value,” Matthew Trichardt, Regional Manager – North-West Africa at Axess Group said.
The FPSO will be deployed at the Sangomar field located approximately 100 km south of Dakar, Senegal. The Sangomar Field Development is expected to be Senegal’s first offshore oil development.
