FPSO Baobab Ivoirien MV10 - Cote d' Ivoire

SOFEC designed and constructed an external turret mooring system to moor a 357,000 dwt MODEC converted FPSO. The Baobab Development Plan called for the provision of a deepwater turret moored FPSO connected via an external turret mooring system to a series of subsea manifolds.

The FPSO is installed in 970 meters water depth, making it one of the deepest water FPSOs in the world.

This SOFEC external turret mooring system is ABS classed.
