MISC awards FPSO unit off Brazil to Aker Solutions


MISC Bhd has awarded a contract to Aker Solutions in Malaysia to provide engineering services for a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facility, located offshore Rio de Janeiro.

KUALA LUMPUR: MISC Bhd has awarded a contract to Aker Solutions in Malaysia to provide engineering services for a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facility, located offshore Rio de Janeiro in Brazil.

In a statement on Monday, Aker Solutions said the project will be led by its engineering team in Kuala Lumpur with the support from the company’s other engineering hubs globally.

The FPSO engineering services work scope includes detailed design for topsides, hull, marine and subsea interfaces.

Aker Solutions’ senior vice president, engineering Malaysia and global business development Jason Brown said the company has extensive experience in both newbuild and modification for FPSOs.

“Our engineering team in Kuala Lumpur has over 30 years of proven capability in executing engineering projects globally.

“We have been partnering with MISC in the last four years to pursue opportunities in local and international projects and we are pleased to continue the collaboration in the latest project, ” Brown said.

In October last year, Aker Solutions secured an award in China from Tianjin BOMESC Offshore Engineering Company Ltd to provide engineering services for five topsides process modules with a total weight of approximately 10,000 tonnes for an FPSO project offshore Rio de Janeiro.

The delivery of the project is expected to be completed in the second quarter of this year.
