The Engie-operated Cygnus gas field offshore UK has started production.
Engie said on Thursday that Cygnus, located in licence areas P1055 & P1731, is expected to contribute 5% of UK gas production – supplying sufficient gas to heat the equivalent of 1.5 million UK homes.
Vantrunk supplied the cable management system via Maclean Electrical.
As the first anniversary in our brand new 100,000 Sq. Ft manufacturing facility in Warrington approaches, our capability and commitment to add value to every customer and project around the world has never been greater. Investment in new machinery alongside greater storage and project marshalling space enhances our capabilities when it comes to delivering extreme cable management to major projects worldwide.
Vantrunk as a sub-supplier to MacLean Electrical have been awarded a major contract to supply their world renowned Speedway Cable Ladder system to the GDF SUEZ E&P UK operated Cygnus Gas Project. Vantrunk will supply their Speedway SW6 Ladder complete with accessories in marine grade stainless steel to ensure the system can withstand the harsh North Sea environment. The award cements Vantrunk’s position as the leader in Extreme Cable Management.
The Cable Ladder will be manufactured out of Vantrunk’s 100,000 sq ft facility in Warrington and shipped to Heerema Fabrication Group’s Hartlepool yard in the United Kingdom where fabrication and commissioning of four topsides is taking place.
The Cygnus project, sanctioned in August 2012, is expected to contribute 5% to UK gas production at peak production (due 2016) – supplying gas to the equivalent to 1.5 million homes in Britain. GDF SUEZ E&P UK is the operator of Cygnus, responsible for ensuring that this valuable hydrocarbon resource is extracted and supplied safely and efficiently. Cygnus gas field is situated in the Southern North Sea within UK Continental Shelf blocks 44/12a and 44/11a in 23m of water
