GE is supplying the Gorgon Project with machinery for the LNG cooling process, carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration and energy production. The various machines intended for the Gorgon Project in Australia come from various parts of the world. Moreover, GE was awarded a 22-year contractual service agreement with Chevron Australia for machine maintenance and additional monitoring and diagnostics services.
The Avenza construction yard is an industrial area of approximately 80,000 m2. It was inaugurated on 29th September 2011.
To ensure the conservation of Barrow Island, Western Australia where the Gorgon Project is located, environmental management processes were implemented during assembly of the modules at the Avenza construction yard. These requirements ensured all materials were free of visible contaminants, such as loam, mud, vegetation (e.g. seeds), vertebrates and invertebrates.
