KMY Floats Out Njord Field FSU

The Floating Storage Unit (FSU) under construction at Kvaerner Masa-Yards' Turku New Shipyard (KMY) for Norsk Hydro Production was recently launched. The FSU, due for delivery in June, will be anchored in a water depth of approximately 1,082 ft. (330 m) using a Submerged Turret Loading (STL) system anchored on the sea bed. Njord will be one of the first fields on the Norwegian continental shelf to incorporate this technology.

The field will be equipped with subsea wells tied back toj a Floating Production (FPU), located ^Iir( above thek coi wells.

Oil productl field is scheduled to in October, and the will have a storage capacity of 112,000-cu-m, or roughly that produced in 10 days.

The passive turret mooring system is located in the forebody of the FSU. Crude oil from the FPU is transferred via a flexible riser and a swivel through the turret into the vessel.

The main electrical power supply (11 kV) will be transferred through the turret via electrical cables and a slip ring unit.

The FpLL^an reportedly be operated w^hoLt aVrew during normal operation.

; The dffljy^jjj^ of stabilized oil to shut'tle Jankers is arranged thi'ough"inflexible hose in the stern f M F S U .

The offloading rate is 8,000 cu. "m./hr. The FSU will be equipped with a 2.5-MW azimu thing raster, located in the aft, which will be used for heading control at the offloading phase. The vessel is to be classed to DNV standards.
