Recently completed project

The JOWA USA service manager, Phil Baxter, recently completed the commissioning of the tank level gauging system on the vessel shown in the photo. The vessel is an FSO (Floating Storage & Offloading) vessel that was converted from a tanker. The FSO will be anchored in the Benchamas oil field in the Gulf of Thailand. The tank level gauging system is a backup to the radar based system.
