Finland's Cargotec announced Friday that its unit MacGregor has won an order from Bumi Armada Berhad, a Malaysia-based international offshore oilfied services provider, to supply a Pusnes offloading system for a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) conversion project at Keppel Shipyard in Singapore. The Pusnes offloading system will be delivered by March 2015. The order is booked into the second quarter 2014 order intake.
"By having Pusnes products in MacGregor's portfolio, we are able to offer complete mooring and loading systems for floating production units," says Francis Wong, vice president, Segment Sales, Offshore.
Bumi Armada are using a recently built ice-class tanker for the FPSO conversion, which will take place at Keppel Shipyard Ltd in Singapore. Once completed, FPSO Armada Kraken will have a total storage capacity of 600,000 barrels and will be deployed at the Kraken field located in the UK sector of the North Sea.
"Our customer wanted to have an experienced supplier with a good track record of delivering safe and reliable offloading systems for demanding North Sea projects," adds Erland Berntsen, sales manager, Offshore Loading at MacGregor.
