The POC yard is best known from delivering floating offshore structures for oil and gas exploration and production purposes for several international energy companies. The platforms include semi-submersible, Jack-up and Spar type hulls. A total of 14 Spar hulls have been constructed at the POC facility in Pori.
A wide range of Subsea equipment, including ILTs/FLETs, Suction piles, Buoyancy cans, Goosenecks, Mudmats, etc, have been produced at the facility during the past 10 years. The deliveries have included large scale testing programs for the units (FAT, EFAT, SIT).
During the company’s history more than 150 pieces of large-scale pressure containing equipment have been fabricated at the POC facility in Mäntyluoto.
POC has fabricated a variety of heavy steel structures for different applications in the marine industry, nuclear industry, civil construction and other applications.
POC has delivered EPC projects to major energy companies such as Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, BP, Chevron, Equinor, ExxonMobil, Murphy Oil, Neste, Petrobras, Shell, Tullow Oil and Total.
POC has operated as an EPC contractor in three groundbreaking renewable energy projects: the substructure of the world’s first floating offshore windmill and the foundations for the world’s first offshore windmill/windfarm in heavy ice conditions.
