AmClyde completes Turret Bearing System for North Sea's Balder FPSO

Feb 10, 1997 01:00 AM

AmClyde Engineered Products has completed the turn-key delivery of a proprietary Turret Bearing System which has been installed in an oil tanker being converted into an FPSO. The installation was performed at the FELS shipyard in Singapore this past year, and the vessel, SPU-380, is destined to be operated by Exxon in the Balder Field of the North Sea. The turret bearing scope of the project was valued at approximately $ 3 mm.
The AmClyde patented turret bearing enables tankers or other vessels to be reconfigured to floating oil production or storage platforms. The turret bearing design solves the problems associated with anchoring these vessels in deep water while allowing them to weathervane in the wind and currents as they were originally designed to do. It also provides a means for attaching the oil production equipment to ocean floor.
AmClyde has a long-standing reputation as the world's premier designer/builder of large specialty equipment for lifting, pulling and mooring the heaviest loads in the offshore oil markets, for shipyards, for material handling and for US Government installations.
