HHI has built nine over-two-million-barrel FPSOs to date accounting for more than 60 per cent of the world’s market share

The 64,000 ton cylindrical floater, measuring 112-metres in diameter and 75-metres in height, is designed to store one million barrels of crude oil per day. The FPSO will be installed in the Goliat field in the Barents Sea, 85-kilometres northwest of Hammerfest, with start-up expected by mid-2015.

The design and manufacture of the project strictly complied with the NORSOK standards. The FPSO features a cylindrical shape designed to withstand harsh sea conditions.

With the 490-metre-long H-Dock, specifically designed to build mega-sized offshore facilities and the two 1,600 ton gantry cranes at its Ulsan offshore yard, HHI has built nine over-two-million-barrel FPSOs to date accounting for more than 60 per cent of the world’s market share.
