The need to improve safety, earnings and efficiency has made modification projects a substantial area of investment on the Norwegian continental shelf. GMC has an extensive record of successful conversions that includes vessels, rigs and fixed offshore installations. GMC’s strength lies in a close monitoring of customer requirements and expectations, effective methods to deconstruct and reconstruct systems, and the ability to mobilise capacity across disciplines quickly.
Change of use
Most modification projects stem from a change of use. Making a gas producing rig out of an oil producing one, or modifying vessels for new applications, often requires a comprehensive approach.
The GMC Group staffs experts on every subject, from steel and engines, to heavy lifts, diesel, electrical, instrumentation, HVAC and fire protection. GMC maintains facilities to dock all types of vessels and mobile offshore installations, and has the capacity to carry out full EPCI projects, consisting of engineering, procurement/acquisition, completion and installation.
GMC has a reputation for being solution-oriented. We use a unique project management model with real-time updating of all operations and decision-making authority in joint operations. This ensures effective implementation, strong communication, and cost savings for the customer – but first and foremost, a continuous improvement of solutions for our clients. The model has demonstrated its strength through long-term customer relationships and reference projects.
