On 16 March 2020, Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering’s (MMHE) project teams have successfully and safely completed the integration of external turret to Floating, Storage and Offloading (FSO) Golden Star according to client’s schedule. This is a remarkable feat, as the COVID-19 pandemic has struck the country by storm and caused a nationwide lockdown which inevitably affected business operations.
Approximately a year after the project award on 22 March 2019, MMHE project teams completed the 10-month construction of the turret before it was handed over to our client, Promor Pte Ltd on 15 March 2020. The project teams received high recognition on the overall project management and construction from Promor Pte Ltd based on the customer feedback report.
This project is a part of Sao Vang & Nguyet Development Project. Upon scheduled completion of its conversion in June 2020, the FSO Golden Star will be located in offshore of Vietnam. It shall be stationed, without dry-docking, for a period of up to fifteen (15) years with a design life of at least twenty (20) years.
