PALFINGER to supply cranes and lifesaving appliances for “Anna Nery” FPSO


PALFINGER has successfully secured a major contract with the Malaysian Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel provider Yinson. Bound for the Marlim 2 oil field in the Campos Basin off the coast of Brazil, the FPSO vessel, called “Anna Nery”, will be equipped with a comprehensive package including cranes, lifeboats, a rescue boat, and davits.


Floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels like the Anna Nery are particularly efficient in locations where seabed pipelines are not cost-effective. This is the case at the Marlim 2 oilfield in Campos Basin, Brazil. PALFINGER will deliver two electro-hydraulic stiff boom cranes adapted to the specific requirements of the project. Each crane comes with a total outreach of 41 meters and a maximum lifting capacity of 35 metric tons. Beyond that, the FPSO vessel will be equipped with one rescue boat, four lifeboats, and the accompanying davits. Each lifeboat is designed and built for 75 persons.


The deployment of the Anna Nery FPSO, built from a converted tanker, represents Yinson’s largest project to date. “We are very pleased and proud to play a part in this important project,” says Kjetil Roksvåg, Senior Sales Manager at PALFINGER. “When it comes to designing and developing equipment, our expertise enables us to provide innovative overall solutions for the floating production market. PALFINGER looks forward to building on this partnership in the years to come.”


The Anna Nery FPSO will be installed around 150 kilometers off the coast of Brazil. It will be capable of producing 70,000 barrels of oil and 4 million cubic meters of gas per day. The production is scheduled to commence in the years 2022 and 2023 and its units will be operated for 25 years.
