Damen dry-docks FPSO Petrojarl I for hull work

Damen dry-docks FPSO Petrojarl IAfter four months of preliminary work alongside, FPSO Petrojarl I moved on April 16, 2015 into Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam’s (DSR) dry dock no 8 for work to the hull.

In all, the vessel will spend a year at DSR before heading off to the South Atlantic. The Teekay-managed FPSO arrived at Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam in January 2015.

DSR was awarded an EPC contract by Teekay Petrojarl LLC for the upgrade, on completion of which the vessel will be redeployed at the Atlanta field in Brazil.

The project consists of the basic, detailed, construction and interface engineering; marine and process equipment procurement; fabrication; construction; corrosion protection/coating; transport and lifting operations; integration, mechanical completion, performance testing and commissioning activities. It also includes upgrades and modifications related to a marine, hull and life extension according to Class, conversion of the process systems (i.e. separation train and produced water topsides) and integration, and finally ensuring Brazilian compliance.

To achieve such an upgrade DSR has formed partnerships with equipment supplier Frames BV and marine engineers Nevesbu BV. Frames is carrying out the design and fabrication of the new Topside Skids while Nevesbu is responsible for the marine and topside integration engineering.

The contract is being managed by DSC’s Offshore & Conversion task force team, and is to its knowledge the first EPC Redeployment Upgrade Contract to be carried out in Europe, the company’s press release reads.

According to Damen, this project represents a major step in the development of Damen Shiprepair & Conversion as a full service conversion group.
