TMC will supply the FPSO’s complete compressed air system consisting of several large offshore screw compressors, air dryers and filter systems, the company said,

TMC, based in Oslo, has not disclosed the value of the contract.
The FPSO will be deployed at the Bacalhau field, which is located in in 2,050 meters deep waters, approximately 185 kilometers off the coast of Ilhabela, São Paulo, Brazil.
