SUCCESS IN THE FIELD

Project managers solve logistical challenges to achieve results

Danos provided mechanical hook-up and commissioning support for a customer’s floating production unit (FPU). The company also closed out or mitigated more than 2,000 punch-list items, enabling the customer to produce first oil on schedule. Danos provided onshore logistics, materials management, fabrication and construction support throughout the topside integration.

Once the FPU was moored, Danos continued to provide installation, testing and remediation services. One challenge of the project was that many operations typically performed onshore—adjustable speed drive, transformer removals, large valve replacements and hydrostatic testing—had to be carried out in the offshore environment. Danos managed complex logistics and personnel on board limitations to successfully execute the FPU mechanical hook-up and commissioning project. Thanks to over seven decades of experience, Danos has helped create innovative solutions for the clients who rely on them.
