Heatric lands major international heat exchanger deal

Meggitt, the supplier of components and subsystems for the aerospace, defence and selected energy markets, has landed a contract with MODEC for the supply of printed circuit heat exchangers (PCHEs) to the Bacalhau Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel.

The contract will be supplied by Meggitt’s Heatric business, which is based in Birmingham.

MODEC’s Bacalhau vessel will be the largest FPSO ever delivered to Brazil with a topside designed to produce up to 220,000 barrels of crude oil per day.
