Heard in the conference theatre at Breakbulk Asia 2019

EPC major Fluor is expanding output at its fabrication facility at Zhuhai, on the South China Sea near Hong Kong, already one of world’s largest.

Speaking at Breakbulk Asia in Shanghai Wednesday, Miroslav Jakab, China logistics manager, said the 2 million-square-meter facility can accommodate fabrication of modules weighing more than 50,000 tonnes, and its output will increase from 200,000 to 300,000 tonnes per year.

The yard gives Fluor “direct control over the fabrication of the modules and can optimize the process in terms of safety and flexibility so we can flexibly react to changes in the project life cycle and adjust as needed,” Jakab said.

The yard, a joint venture between Fluor and Offshore Oil Engineering Co. Ltd., serves Asia-Pacific and global clients.
