Through the establishment of the joint venture company, Modec and Toyo will further deepen the form of collaboration and jointly strengthen the engineering and project management capabilities to carry out the challenging large-scale FPSO projects, and the two companies jointly aim to strengthen the technological capabilities and competitiveness in the FPSO industry.

Furthermore, synergies between the duo are expected to be demonstrated in the exploration of new technology and product opportunities in growth markets as well as in the development of environmentally friendly FPSOs for the realization of decarbonized society.

As for Toyo, it is a global engineering group that has rich EPC experience in industrial facilities, such as oil & gas development, refinery, petrochemicals, fertilizer, and power generation. There are six autonomous EPC group affiliates widespread across the world.
