  • Aker Solutions to deliver Goliat Mooring System

    Aker Solutions will design and supply an on-vessel Pusnes mooring systemTM for the Goliat FPSO. The contract, awarded by Eni Norge for about US $24 million (NOK 150 million), consists of 14 Pusnes fairlead chain stoppersTM and three moveable Pusnes windlassesTM for a 165 mm chain size. The hull for the round-shaped production unit will be built in South Korea. Once completed, the FPSO will mobilize to the Goliat field in the Barents Sea. The fairlead chain stopper, developed by Aker, constrains the mooring load to a limited area on the hull. Its long, pivoting stopper arm reduces chain wear and increases the fatigue life of the chain.
