VIDEO: McDermott assembled Freeport LNG liquefaction module transport
McDermott has procured, fabricated and assembled this Freeport LNG liquefaction module at Lake Charles, Louisiana fabrication facility. Then module was transported to Freeport, Texas.
Modular construction offers a number of advantages over conventional "stick-built" construction. The bulk of the fabrication and assembly are performed at McDermott's facilities. Modular construction also minimizes lay-down space, an important benefit when the field site is small or congested, and reduces delays due to adverse weather. In-air work is minimized and foundation requirements are often simplified.
