Conversion success


Orders for the offshore sector have always been a specialty of Blohm + Voss Repair GmbH, based in Hamburg. However, with its latest project the shipyard has evidently done more than surpass itself - according to the customer, it has set a world record. The work involved conversion of the 69,222 gt/138,680 tdw tanker "Knock Taggart", built in 1974 at Götaverken shipyard (Göteburg, Sweden), from an FSO (floating storage and offloading vessel) into an FPSO (floating production, storage and offloading vessel). The customers, Red Band AS and Fred Olsen Production AS, both Oslo, insisted on an
extremely short deadline for the project. Blohm + Voss Repair kept this deadline – which many experts had considered an impossibility – and actually completed the project even more promptly than required. The "Knock Taggart" was converted for its new deployment role to the owner's complete satisfaction and delivered after only 57 days instead of the 60 days contractually agreed.
