Drydocks to Build Turret Mooring for Johan Castberg FPSO
Drydocks World has signed a contract with SBM Offshore to construct the turret mooring system (TMS) for Statoil’s Johan Castberg floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel.
Drydocks World will be responsible for detail design of certain specified works, bulk procurement and construction including super duplex piping work and TLER/TLIR module.
The Johan Castberg FPSO will be permanently moored by the internal TMS at the Johan Castberg field, offshore Norway. The system will allow the vessel to passively weathervane around the anchor legs while simultaneously transferring fluids, power, and communications signals between the vessel and subsea equipment, the company explained.
Drydocks World’s chief operating officer Mohammad Rizal said, “Drydocks World has a strong track record in delivering turret mooring systems with an excellent safety and quality record. This is the 3rd turret that SBM Offshore has awarded to Drydocks World. Drydocks World is committed to once again deliver a safe and quality product in a timely manner that fully meets our client’s expectations.”
