Dutch dredging specialist Van Oord, in consortium with TechnipFMC, has won a contract by Anadarko Moçambique Área 1, Lda, for their Area 1 Mozambique Golfinho/Atum development.

The contract will cover the Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (EPCI) of the subsea systems.

According to the agreement, Van Oord will execute the shallow offshore installation scope while its consortium partner TechnipFMC is responsible for the deep water scope.

Commenting the latest news, Maurits den Broeder, Managing Director Van Oord Offshore, said: “We are proud to be part of this prestigious project and look forward to working with TechnipFMC for Anadarko to deliver this important piece of energy transition infrastructure which will allow Mozambique to unlock its natural resources.”

The total contract value for the consortium TechnipFMC and Van Oord is over $1 billion.
