The 31,500 dwt Petrojarl 1 has been operated by Teekay for 28 years in the North Sea and is now destined for the Atlanta Field in Brazil.After extensive engineering, more than 50% of the process equipment was removed and replaced by new and additional equipment, required to treat heavy oil at the new location in accordance with the most stringent specifications and Brazilian compliance requirements, Damen explained.The available deck space presented major challenges during engineering and execution of the work on board, Damen added.“The Petrojarl 1 project fits within the strategy of Damen to expand further into the repair and conversion of complex offshore vessels and operating units. The recent acquisition of the Damen Verolme Rotterdam yard (DVR), located in the Botlek area of the Port of Rotterdam and holding an extensive track record of successfully refurbished offshore vessels, further complements us in this ambition,” Mark Witjens, Director at Damen Shiprepair & Conversion, commented.The self-propelled FPSO spent 14 months in one of the company’s docks undergoing refurbishment of its marine systems, underwater hull, seawater system, crane booms, heating coils in the cargo tanks and specialised steel works in the upper and lower turret areas, which needed to be completely revised and adapted to suit the 1,500-meter-deep mooring location.Simultaneously, new designed prefabricated equipment skids containing heating, cooling, separation, compression, boilers, centrifuges as well as a new E-house with electrical equipment were placed on board. Interconnecting piping and cabling was installed to complete the topsides and connect it to the remaining facilities.
