Equinor and Mitsui Offshore Development Corporation (MODEC) conducted the first cutting ceremony of the Bacalhau FPSO Topside project in the afternoon of June 1 at the construction site of the port in BOMESC.

The Bacalhau FPSO, owned by Equinor of Norway, is the first phase of the Bacalhau field in Brazil's pre-salt Santos Basin, acquired by Equinor. It will operate on blocks BM-S-8 and North Carcara in Brazil's Santos Basin, and will be one of the largest FPSOs in Brazilian waters in terms of production and reserves. The Bacalhau FPSO is 364 meters long, 64 meters wide and 33 meters deep, with a designed draft of 22.65 meters. It can withstand the once-in-a-century environmental conditions in Brazil's local waters and is the world's first gas-turbine closed-loop power generation system.

BOMESC has always been committed to adhering to the "safety first, quality and quantity, and delivery time" in the construction of the project. In order to meet the requirements of high quality work, careful construction plans were made at the beginning of the construction, so as to ensure the construction of all links of the subsequent project and the orderly cooperation among various specialties.

On such an important milestone today, the representatives of the three parties witnessed this important moment, and will also show the firm determination and commitment of BOMESC in the future work.
