Blue Water Shipping adds fourth TCO contract

May 10 - A consortium led by Blue Water Shipping (BWS) has been awarded an additional contract by Tengizchevroil (TCO) for a project in Kazakhstan.

The latest contract follows the award of three contracts in 2016 in connection with the Tengizchevroil (TCO) Future Growth Project-Wellhead Pressure Management Project (FGP-WPMP), as reported by HLPFI here.

For these contracts, BWS is leading two consortia that will supply 20 specially-designed module carrying vessels (MCVs) for the transportation of modules through the Russian inland waterway system and on the Caspian Sea to a new offloading facility in Prorva, Kazakhstan.

The latest contract in support of TCO's FGP-WPMP will see BWS lead a consortium, which includes Manchester Shipping, that will provide international transport of modular cargo from the Black and Baltic seas - via the Russian inland waterway system - to Prorva.

This will involve the use of up to 11 barges and 29 tugs, says BWS. These vessels will be upgraded and modified where required to meet the specific transport requirements of the cargo movements.

The consortium will work in close cooperation with the leading Russian tug and barge operators for the provision of the vessels' crews and services within the Russian inland waterways system, bringing significant investment into that system, the Danish-based company adds.
