NFM winch to manage Schiehallion moorings

Offshore staff

LYON, France – SBM Offshore has contracted NFM Technologies to supply the mooring and riser installation winch for BP’s Quad 204 FPSO turret west of Shetland.

The winch system is due to be delivered to Hyundai Heavy Industries in South-Korea in 4Q 2013, where it will be installed on the turret.

The 260-ton winch will be used for pull-in of mooring lines, risers and umbilicals for hookup of the floater, which will replace the existing Schiehallion field FPSO.

Previously NFM Technologies designed and manufactured the 400-ton capacity riser pull-in systems for Total’s Dalia and Pazflor FPSOs offshore Angola.
