Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering

The rapidly increasing number of Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO/FSO) Systems is a result of reservoir characteristics, water depth and planning for re-use of units. VPartner has provided expertise to several of these through design engineering, environmental considerations, installation management, mooring system hook up, riser installation, inspection, maintenance and repair.

Present FPSO and FSO systems are provided in a number of uniquely designed configurations such as hull shapes, subsea tie-back concepts, number and dimensions of risers, mooring systems, processing and offloading concepts. One of the leading owners and operators of such systems worldwide is Teekay Corporation. VPartner has worked for several Teekay projects and FPSO / FSO installations such as; Petrojarl I, Varg, Foinaven, Banff and Gina Krog.

In 2013 / 14 we have responded to a demand from the West African market in trying to identify cost effective solutions for Floating Storage and Regasification Units (FSRUs) providing stable LNG banks for supply to domestic and industrial consumption.
