"Sun Rise," a 20-year old VLCC, is undergoing conversion to an FPSO in COSCO Dalian Shipyard. The work scope for the conversion project involves the installation and/or renewal of 8,000 tonnes of steel structure, 350,000m of cables, of 800 tonnes of piping systems, the completion of 120,000m2 coating and the installation and commissioning of the topside modules. It is scheduled to be delivered in May 2010.
After conversion, the completed FPSO will be stationed offshore Brazil.
"It is my second time to be here in COSCO Dalian Shipyard in charge of a conversion project," Mr. Andy said. "In the past two years, I have truly experienced the day-to-day development of COSCO Dalian Shipyard. Friendly and considerate shipyard staff are the friend of every customer. I just feel at home," he added.
On the basis of his former experience with an FPSO conversion, Mr. Andy is full of confidence that COSCO Dalian Shipyard will complete the "Sun Rise" project to the high standards they have been set and reach outstanding achievement by continuous innovation and hard work.
