The value of the awarded contract is approximately $35 million.
TORONTO — Shawcor Ltd. said that its pipe coating division has earned a definitive contract from Allseas to provide anti-corrosion, internal flow coat, and concrete weight coatings for the Darwin Pipeline Duplication project, located offshore Northern Australia.
The value of the award is approximately $35 million. The company says it will execute the work from Shawcor’s Kabil, Indonesia facility beginning in 2023.
“Shawcor has many years of experience successfully executing large, complex coating projects from our Kabil facility, including the Scarborough project which will be underway imminently,” stated Simon Dewey, PPG’s senior vice president – Eastern Hemisphere.
“We believe this experience, combined with our market leading technology and highest quality standards, positions Shawcor to be a strong partner to Allseas.”
PPG president Kevin Reizer stated that the global offshore pipeline construction industry is entering what he described as a “multi-year period of robust activity.” He stated that behind this shift is an increasing necessity for energy supply and energy security.
He added that the award of this contract together with the recently announced Southeast Gateway Pipeline contract will serve to strengthen their backlog and presence in the international market.
