The Submerged Production Unit (SPU) is a versatile hybrid structure designed to house large subsea processing plants and integration of prequalified equipment via standard interfaces.
The SPU enables larger extent of prefabrication and lower cost in short installation periods. This is an advantage in arctic regions where the operational season usually is shorter. It also leaves a low environmental impact during the lifetime from a total subsea production solution.
The SPU technology is a cost-effective technology platform, avoiding large construction vessels for installation and allowing for a fast and smooth removal after ended lifetime.
