Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) has selected Bluewater Energy Services for the engineering, procurement, construction and integration (EPCI) of a turret and mooring system for the Rosebank project.

The Rosebank floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel will be located about 175km northwest of the Shetland Islands, at a water depth of about 1,100m.

The turret and mooring system will be 80m high and will have a process manifold/turntable of about 34m in diameter.

According to Bluewater, the system will permanently anchor the FPSO at its offshore location and allow it to weathervane.

Under the terms of the contract, Bluewater will supply the turret and mooring system for integration at the construction yard of HHI in Ulsan, South Korea.

The Rosebank FPSO will be fabricated at the yard.

In April 2013, HHI had secured a $1.9bn contract from Chevron North Sea to build an FPSO for the Rosebank oil and gas field which is operated by Chevron and partners including Statoil, OMV, and DONG Energy.

Due to be delivered by the end of November 2016, the vessel is 292m long, 57m wide and 30m deep. It will be built according to the Norsok standard developed by the Norwegian petroleum industry.
