8 December 2021 – TMC Compressors (TMC) has been chosen to supply a large marine compressed air system to the Mero-3 floating, production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) destined for Brazil.

“As this is a large FPSO that operates far from shore, it needs a highly reliable, high-capacity marine compressed air system on board. We are also designing it so that the vessel crew can maintain the system by themselves, thereby reducing the need for offshore travel,” says Hans Petter Tanum, TMC’s director of sales and business development.

TMC’s marine compressed air system for the FPSO will consist of large capacity service and instrument air compressors with associated air dryers and filters. TMC has not disclosed the value of the contract.

Malaysian contractor MISC has entered into an agreement with Petrobras to supply the Mero-3 floater.

TMC will manufacture the marine compressed air system in Europe and delivered to the chosen fabrication yard.

Once completed, the FPSO will be deployed at the Libra block in the pre-salt Santos basin offshore Brazil.

TMC is a global supplier of compressed air systems for marine and offshore use. The company is headquartered in Oslo, Norway.
