In 2021, Equinor contracted Modec to supply one of the largest FPSO to be deployed in the Bacalhau field offshore Brazil. The FPSO will be the first application of the Modec’s “M350 Hull”, a next generation new build hull for FPSOs, full double hull design, which has been developed to accommodate larger topside and larger storage capacity than conventional VLCC tanker, with a longer design service life. The hull is built in BOMESC, China, Topside modules by Aibel Thailand and integration by Keppel Singapore.

Topsteel was awarded the full package of carbon steel, low temperature carbon steel and stainless steel pipes, fittings, flanges and o’lets for both Aibel (Topsides) and Modec (Hull).
