The Kaombo FPSO project involves the conversion of two FPSO units into two turret-moored Floating Production Storage and Offloading units to be positioned in the Kaombo Field Development Project located in Blaock 32, offshore Angola.

The Kaombo FPSO project is managed by the Saipem Floaters Business Unit France, and their activities include engineering, procurement, topsides modules fabrication and integration as well as commissioning both onshore and offshore works in Angola.

The topsides fabrication was carried out in the Saipem yard in Karimun Island, Indonesia where over 30,000 sq mtrs of SOLARTECH UV Curing GRP material was applied by Meisei, the Insulation contractor, as cladding protection to the various insulation systems.

Solartech International Ltd provided training and technical support throughout the project.
