ICE UNVEILS SUSTAINABLE FPSO DESIGN

Tuesday, July 7, 2020 

Based on its experience from more than 40 FSO and FPSO projects, ship designer ICE has released a new generic FPSO Hull design with emphasis on sustainability and flexibility.

Measuring 330m x 62m, the G-2400-SM has a storage capacity of 2.4 million barrels of oil. It can carry a range of topside configurations of up to 40,000t.

The main features of the G-2400-SM FPSO Hull are:

  • Well-balanced hydrodynamic and motion characteristics for deep-water fields in harsh metocean conditions,
  • Symmetrical hull form, allowing either end to be positioned towards the prevailing weather,
  • Robust, simple to build double hull including double bottom,
  • Spacious deck area thanks to a fully rectangular main deck,
  • Spread mooring, with options for turret mooring.

The new design is focused on low emission and high energy efficiency through integration of systems including HC gas blanketing, VOC recovery, waste heat recovery, fuel management, and HVAC energy recovery.
