Glen Lyon FPSO, Hook-up preparations

No comments



One of the larger projects for Otech in 2016 is the hook-up preparations for the newbuilt FPSO Glen Lyon.

Built to process and store oil and gas from the redeveloped Schiehallion and Loyal fields in the UK North Sea, the FPSO has a highly advanced turret system.

Otech was awarded the contract of removing all seafastening and performing necessary tests on the chainconnectors and turret system at Aibel Yard in Haugesund.

The extensive BP pre-qualification process and the six month planning and engineering phase ensured a dynamic and well excecuted project.
