EPC works including structural, mechanical, electrical, HVAC and telecommunications


Kentech Sakhalin were awarded the engineering, procurement and construction of a 308 man camp to be located on the 79km long pipeline running between the Chayvo and Odoptu settlements in the very north of Sakhalin Island.  Kentech's work began with the design, engineering, supply and fabrication of camp modules to be completed in Yuzhno.

The field works in Odoptu included the installation of the foundations and further erection of living modules.  Kentech also provided the services within the camp including electrical, water, sewage and fire protection systems.

Subsequent to the initial contract award, there were a few changes to the scope of the project.  The original allocation of 172 was split into two, extending and partially upgrading it to an executive camp.  The first installation was located at the original site near Piltun Bay and the second installation was an extension to the Main Well Site Camp in Odoptu, 110km north of Piltun Bay.

The camp at Piltun Bay was constructed in a modular approach with fabrication taking place in Yuzhno and then transported to remote job sites in the north of Sakhalin.  Kentech were able to overcome the difficult logistics of this move to site, which on average took 2-3 days for a truck to travel the 820km distance, often in harsh weather conditions with minus 40 temperatures.

The completed facilities provide several accommodation wings with associated facilities, including an Executive wing for 28, office and administration areas with world class data cabling, kitchen, dining, recreation and safety rooms.

On completion of the project, the client commented "the commitment, leadership and dedication of Kentech Management ensured that the project was delivered successfully and, more importantly, safely".
