Mooring Systems - Internal Disconnectable Turret

FSO Nan Hai Sheng Kai - People's Repulic of China

SOFEC designed and constructed a disconnectable internal turret mooring system to moor a MODEC converted 121,361 dwt FSO vessel in the typhoon alley area offshore People's Republic of China.

An internal disconnectable turret mooring system was chosen so that the FSO can disconnect and sail to safe harbour as typhoons approach. The FSO could then return to the field and reconnect after the typhoon has passed.

This SOFEC disconnectable internal turret mooring system is ABS classed.
