Royal IHC to supply equipment for Maersk’s Culzean FSO

Royal IHC has won a new contract for the engineering, procurement, and construction of a tandem mooring and offloading system for a floating, storage and offloading (FSO) vessel meant for the Maersk Oil-operated Culzean field in the UK North Sea. 

The offloading system will be placed on the FSO vessel on behalf of Sembcorp Integrated Yard in Singapore. Sembcorp, in charge of designing and building the FSO, cut the first steel for the unit in July this year.

The vessel will be owned and operated by Maersk and is designated for the Culzean gas field, located in Block 22/25a of the UK continental shelf.

According to IHC, the offloading system will consist of an offloading hose-reel assembly complete with offloading hose and an OHTP (Outboard Hose Termination Piece), a mooring hawser reel assembly complete with quick-release mechanism, a control cabin, an auxiliary pull-in winch, an actuated emergency shutdown valve and a hydraulic power unit.

The offloading system will be delivered in autumn 2017 ready for installation. The company said it will deliver the offloading system with a high percentage of local materials, which was an ‘important factor’ in the customer’s decision to place the order with IHC.

“IHC is delighted to confirm this new contract with Sembcorp Integrated Yard for the supply of a new offloading system for use on an FSO vessel in the North Sea,” says Joti Hakkert, Executive Director Mission Equipment.
