SK Ocean Plant delivers 1 FPSO hull

South Korea’s SK Ocean Plant recently announced that it has delivered a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) hull to BW Offshore which will be installed in the Barossa field in Australia.

The vessel, named Barossa FPSO, is 359m in length, 64m in breadth, 31.5m in height, and 78,000 tons GVW. BW Offshore entered into a hull construction contract with SK Ocean Plant in April 2021, with a total value of 347 billion won, and took two years and six months to be completed and delivered. To ensure timely delivery, SK Ocean Plant loaded the hull segments directly at the floating dock, thus significantly reducing the construction time.

Earlier, SK Ocean Plant delivered the bow section of the hull ordered in 2016 to IHI Japan. The “Barossa FPSO” is the company’s first project to build and deliver an entire hull in batches.

In addition, SK Ocean Plant manufactured and delivered a 26,000-ton pre-assembled pipe rack (PAR) module for the Dos Bocas refinery project in Mexico. A supply contract for this project was signed in December 2020 with a contract value of KRW 112.3 billion and delivered in 2022.
