Chinese yard Penglai Jutal Offshore Engineering (PJOE) has delivered an external turret mooring system to Houston-based turret specialist Sofec for the floating production, storage and offloading vessel destined for the Sangomar oilfield offshore Senegal, Africa.

The turret weighs 5800 tonnes, including 3500 tonnes of structures for the lower section, swivel access structure and riser access, and 2300 tonnes of piles.

The Sangomar external turret, the largest that PJOE has ever built, was completed in 18 months since the first steel cut in December 2020.
