    Projects

     

    Strategy

    Saipem targets high-complexity projects that allow the company to leverage its strong engineering capabilities and its ability to provide optimized design services (e.g. design competitions as opposed to conventional bids), such as FLNG projects, large FPSO conversions and frontier projects in the Arctic and in harsh environments.

    Furthermore, given its strong local presence in countries such as in Indonesia, Angola, Nigeria, Congo and Brazil, Saipem is also targeting projects featuring high local content requirements.

    Research & Technology Development

    The focus of the business unit is primarily on high-end technological solutions, such as FLNG and floaters for harsh conditions.

    Sustainability

    Saipem aims to become a key international player on high-tech projects such as FLNGs, or large-size and complex projects on which Local Content can become a competitive driver.

    Saipem can leverage: its expertise in onshore and offshore project management and engineering; strategic alliances with specialist partners for offshore plants; proven experience in large new-build FPSO key offshore and onshore projects; a multi-local organisation and the financial strength to manage and deliver large-scale projects.
