The contracts were awarded over the last few weeks for projects in Angola, Benin, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Liberia and Nigeria. 

In Angola, a 5-year maintenance dredging contract has been awarded by Angola LNG for its gas terminal in Soyo. Works will start by mid of June 2017.

In Benin, DEME was awarded a contract for coastal protection works at the Cotonou shoreline. Works will include beach nourishment with a total volume of 1.5 mn m³ as well as revetment works and groyne construction.

In Ghana, DEME participates in a contract for the Tema Port expansion project. Ghana’s main seaport, operated by Meridian Port Services (MPS), is gearing up to accommodate some of the world’s largest container ships and increase cargo handling services and capacity. The project includes dredging and land reclamation of 3 mn m³. Works are set to start by the end of May 2017.

In Cote d'Ivoire, a contract has been awarded for the maintenance dredging of the port of Abidjan. Works will be executed in May 2017. It is the third consecutive time that DEME is contracted by the Port Autonome d’Abidjan to maintain the port.

DEME also returns to Liberia for maintenance dredging works in the Freeport of Liberia. The contract has been awarded by Liberia’s National Ports Authority.

In Nigeria, DEME acquired a contract for the Maiyegun Waterfront development in Lagos. DEME reclaims approximately 600,000 m³ to raise the level of an existing beach. Maiyegun Waterfront will include new housing units, a commercial hub, as well as leisure facilities. The contract in Nigeria follows the recently won project for the Lagos Deep Offshore Logistics Base (LADOL), where DEME is involved in the yard and quay wall construction, as well as the dredging of the berth pocket and access channel to the quay, on behalf of Samsung Heavy Industries.

Fluenta launches Flow Calibration Facility for pre-shipping meter calibration

Fluenta, the global leader in ultrasonic measurement and management technology, has announced the launch of its internal ‘Flow Calibration Facility’ for accurate calibration of customer flow meters. The facility offers customers the capability to accurately calibrate flow meters at the Fluenta factory before shipment to the final destination. 

Fluenta’s gas flow meters use ultrasonic technology to deliver the most accurate measurement of flow against all temperatures and flow levels. The ability to calibrate meters in the factory ensures a faster and more effective set up on site, as well as the highest levels of accuracy.

Fluenta’s Flow Calibration Facility provides a reference meter uncertainty of 0.28 per cent, ensuring extremely accurate measurement of flow velocity, temperature and pressure before a meter leaves Fluenta’s factory. 

Sigurd Aase, CEO of Fluenta, comments: “Accuracy can be challenging in flow measurement during periods of low flow velocity or where temperatures vary.” 

“Offering our customers the ability to calibrate meters before they leave the Fluenta factory means they can be confident they will receive the most accurate and consistent readings possible.”
