External Turret Mooring Systems provide an excellent solution for a wide range of FSO/FPSO applications.
These proven single-point mooring systems permit the vessel to freely "weathervane" 360 degrees, allowing normal operations in moderate to extreme sea conditions. External turret systems are less expensive than internal turret designs and can be delivered in a shorter period of time, making them an excellent choice for many applications. SOFEC's External Turret Mooring Systems can be mounted at either the bow or stern of converted tankers or new-built vessels.
To date, we have 20 external turret systems installed worldwide with two more under construction.
