Miko Secures Hull Closure Contract For New FPSO.

Offshore Frontier Solutions Pte. Ltd., a MODEC Group company, has placed a new contract with Miko Marine AS of Norway, for the supply of sea inlet covers to be carried aboard its new FPSO.

The Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit is named Errea Wittu. The FPSO Errea Wittu is being built by MODEC for ExxonMobil Guyana Limited and will be deployed approximately 200 kilometers offshore Guyana.

Miko will supply two sea chest covers and two sets of pipe covers. The covers use powerful magnets to hold them in place over sea chests and pipe outlets. This enables internal repair and maintenance work to be conducted safely with a reliable solution for keeping the water out.

Commenting on the new contract, Kåre Anthonsen, Business Development Director for Miko explained, “The company has developed considerable expertise in the design and manufacture of hull closures and cofferdams. The majority of them will feature our unique use of high-power permanent magnets to position and hold each blank in place. They make it possible to achieve an immediate and secure watertight seal for the closures without the need for any other fastening devices to be fitted to the hull”.

Miko Marine AS is based in Oslo, Norway, from where it also provides a range of unique salvage and support products for the marine industry. The company is most widely known for its range of magnetic plasters which can be used to seal hull damage and enable a vessel to be moved safely to a yard for permanent repair.
