FPSO and FSO Conversion

The Harris Pye Group has major  experience with FPSO and FSO  conversions.  

  • We were involved in the pioneer projects when FPSOs and FSOs were still in experimental stages in the 1980s
  • We had key inputs to the development of safe use of dual fuel for boilers and the safe and practical application and installation
  • We have been involved in more than 45% of the world’s FPSOs, from conversions to new builds
  • There are currently 90 FPSO’s in operation globally – we have been involved with over 40 of them.  

Through all stages of conversion, from conception to final commissioning, our highly experienced and dedicated contract engineering teams obtain relevant approval, provide all design work, calculations, fabrication, installation and commissioning.

We ensure that all stages of programming and works undertaken are subject to, and comply with, the latest Class, USCG and Quality Assurance regulations and are guaranteed accordingly.  

All aspects of conversions are covered, including but not limited to: remedial boiler works, installation of multi-fuel system burners and all associated service lines – especially gas and crude oil supply systems, all mechanical, control, electrical and automation aspects are covered to complete conversions on a turnkey basis.  

On station repairs and inspections can be carried out during production, saving precious resources – time and money.
