TechnipFMC announced the opening of the brand new spool base Brazil!
The new facility is strategically positioned in the Açu Port, north of Rio de Janeiro State, and will be TechnipFMC’s most modern spool base worldwide as well as an important asset to meet the future demands of subsea projects.
With a total area of 96,000 square meters, the spool base will be used for the first time for Mero 1 EPCI project execution, scheduled to start in March 2021. It will also be a key asset for the Mero 2 EPCI project, awarded by Petrobras in August.
Mero 1 and Mero 2 projects are part of the wider Mero field development offshore Brazil, managed by Libra Consortium. The field is located in the north western area of the original Libra Block, in the Santos Basin.
