“QuickVision is part of Fugro’s strategy to make offshore operations safer, more efficient and sustainable. The camera system integrated with Fugro’s Starfix navigation suite requires staff to attach sensors to undersea assets. It will eliminate the need for offshore personnel. Time and carbon emissions. “

In the Mero 2 project, Fugro will use this technology to guide the installation of 24 submarine torpedo piles and mooring lines, supporting real-time positioning for additional submarine installation and construction activities.

CNOOC Limited (10%), along with the state-owned company Pré-sal Petróleo SA – PPSA – is the manager of the production sharing agreement.

Provided by SBM Offshore, Sepetiba FPSO has up to 180,000 barrels of oil per day, 250,000 barrels of water per day, and 12 million standard cubic meters of associated gas per day. The minimum storage capacity is 1.4 million barrels of crude oil. The FPSO is moored and spreads to a depth of approximately 2,000 meters.

This unit is built under SBM’s Fast4Ward program. The program combines a new build of a multipurpose hull with several standardized topside modules and is expected to be delivered in 2022.
