Drydocks delivers Prelude FLNG turret mooring system

Drydocks World, a Dubai-based company has completed what it claims to be the world’s largest turret mooring system. The system will be installed aboard the world’s largest FLNG unit, Shell’s Prelude.

At almost 100 meters high, weighing over 11,000 tons and with a diameter of 26 meters, the turret will ensure the Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility can operate safely in the most extreme weather conditions, Drydocks has said. The 488 meters long Prelude FLNG unit will be moored at the Shell-operated Prelude gas field off the northwest coast of Australia.

“Drydocks World has delivered 5 modules for the Shell FLNG turret mooring system and delivery of module 5 represents the completion of the crown jewel of this project, with the turret being the heart of the Prelude FLNG,” the company said in a statement.
