Drydocks World, marine yard service provider, said it signed a deal with SBM Offshore for the construction of the Turret Mooring System (TMS) for Statoil’s Johan Castberg Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel.

The Johan Castberg FPSO will be permanently moored by the internal TMS at the Johan Castberg field in 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.

Drydocks World said it will carry out a detailed design of certain specified works, bulk procurement and construction including Super Duplex piping work and TLER / TLIR module.

“Drydocks World has a strong track record in delivering Turret Mooring Systems with an excellent safety and quality record,” Mohammad Rizal, Drydocks World’s chief operating officer said.

“We have delivered the world’s largest turret to SBM Offshore, which positioned our yard as a global specialist with expertise in delivering large complex projects. This is the 3rd turret that SBM Offshore has awarded to Drydocks World. Our long term business relationship started from 1996 with the first FSO conversion and since then we have successfully completed several FPSO projects. Drydocks World is committed to once again deliver a safe and quality product in a timely manner that fully meets our client’s expectations,” he added.
