Aker Solutions will design, build and supply heavy oil separation equipment to an FPSO vessel operated by OSX in Brazil.

Under the contract Aker will provide new equipment to the existing process facilities to convert the current light oil process system to heavy oil production onboard the OSX-1 FPSO.

The equipment will include a new degasser and compact electrostatic coalescer mounted on a common skid with interconnecting piping and a new third stage electrostatic 3D coalescer with internals.

Work will also cover design modifications to the existing second stage separator and delivery of new internals.
