ENI’s Goliat FPSO, sitting atop the world’s largest heavy lift vessel Dockwise Vanguard, has just begun its 60-day voyage from Hyundai Heavy Industries in South Korea to Norway. At 64,000 tons and measuring 112 meters in diameter by 75 meters tall, the Goliat FPSO is the world’s largest cylindrical floating production, storage and offloading unit.
The FPSO will be installed in the Goliat field in the Barents Sea, 85 km northwest of Hammerfest, with start-up expected by mid-2015.
The following video, produced by News on Request AS for ENI Norge, shows the loadout of this huge structure aboard the Dockwise Vanguard.
With the 490-meter-long H-Dock, specifically designed to build mega-sized offshore facilities and the two 1,600 ton gantry cranes at its Ulsan offshore yard, Hyundai Heavy Indsutries has built nine over-two-million-barrel FPSOs to date, which accounts to about 60% of the world’s market share, according to HHI.
