FPSO conversion

A successful conversion starts with the selection of the right vessel. Extending the life length of older vessels is a difficult and demanding task. GVA has over the years gained a significant expertise in assessing vessels life cycles and can offer support and services in this field.

Once the vessel is selected it is often a delicate task to, at an early stage of the project, decide what system or part shall be modified, upgraded or completely replaced. Late changes or modifications of the conversion scope are often the main source to budget overshoots and delays. With our experienced staff GVA has been able to execute and manage many vessel conversion projects within time and budget. We perform everything from field inspections to project management and implementation of hull and equipment modifications. Areas where GVA offers support are in the modification of hull and machinery systems, naval systems, turret system, topside arrangement, accommodation, helicopter deck, along with the process modules on deck. Additionally GVA can handle any permitting and regulatory work required. GVA has participated in FPSO conversions for some of the world’s most demanding waters.
