Teekay has awarded LBO an engineering project that will generate a replacement methodology of the Swivel Main Bearing at FPSO Petrojarl Foinaven.
For the last 17 years, the current bearing has been in service and it is thought that it will reach the end of its useful operational life soon.
The project shall aim to demonstrate a viable methodology that can be applied, should it be necessary, in future years to replace the main bearing of the swivel stack fitted to FPSO Petrojarl Foinaven. The replacement of Swivel Main Bearing is planned to be undertaken with the vessel on station, if this methodology is proven feasible.
