OSM to carry upgrade modifications on Equinor’s FSU Heidrun B

OSM Offshore AS has been awarded a large offshore Contract for the overall upgrade modifications of the Heidrun B Floating Storage Unit (FSU) from Equinor Energy AS.

The Heidrun B vessel unit is operating at the Heidrun field at the Halten bank off the coast of mid-Norway. The vessel was delivered from Samsung Heavy Industries Korea and set in operation in 2015 and is designed and constructed with the use of maritime specifications and DNV Class.

The unit is owned by Equinor where OSM Offshore AS has been chosen to continue to be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the unit. In parallel, OSM Offshore AS will act as Technical Authority and ensure the technical integrity of the unit. In addition, OSM Offshore will carry out extensive upgrade modifications of the vessel while operating offshore at the Heidrun Field as a storage unit for the oil production at the field. OSM Offshore has established a partnership with Odfjell Technology for the management and completion of the extensive upgrade modifications. The project and operation of the Heidrun B FSU are managed from the OSM head office in Arendal.
