In connection with the opening of Eureka Pumps new workshop in Hammerfest, Eureka attended the Barents Sea Conference and Expo 2015 which took place in Hammerfest April 20th -22nd . The conference is the most relevant forum in the Northern Norway for the discussion of oil & gas related activities, political terms of reference, industrial and BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES and energy sector politics. In addition to conference participation Eureka had its own booth at the Expo.
One of the main attractions was the fact that the Goliat FPSO arrived at shore Hammerfest three days before the conference started and the conference delegates had the opportunity to see this giant from a ferry organized by the Barents Sea Conference. Eureka Pumps field service engineers entered the Goliat FPSO during the conference to assist ENI with the ballast system, which was one of the crucial activities for the float off. Eureka Pumps supplied many of the critical pump applications on Goliat like Ballast Pumps, Sea Water Pumps and Cargo Pumps.
