    Technip-Coflexip subsidiary to participate in Prestige salvage

    News // July 18, 2003
    Seal Engineering SA, a wholly-owned affiliate of Technip-Coflexip, has been awarded a basic engineering contract by Repsol for the fabrication and installation of a confinement structure for the tanker Prestige, which sank off the Atlantic coast of Spainin November 2002 in 3,800m of water.

    Seal Engineering had previously made an offer to Repsol YPF for a solution involving a canopy or Marquesina and subsequently performed a conceptual study at Repsol YPF's request. This structure, which would be fabricated in Spain, will have provisions for future pumping of the collected fuel within the canopy.

    Once the basic engineering of this project is completed, Repsol YPF should be in a position to issue, by the end of this year, an international call for tenders for the actual fabrication and installation of the containment structure.
