Jumbo signs contract with Subsea 7 for the Installation of Western Isles Mooring Piles & Ground Chains

17 Mar 2014

western isles 1On Tuesday 12th of March Jumbo signed a Contract with Subsea 7 for the provision of the FPSO  Mooring Piles and Ground Chains Installation for the Dana Western Isles Development Project (WIDP). Installation of the mooring piles and chains will be done by Jumbo’s Fairplayer, a Dynamically Positioned Heavy Lift Vessel with 2 x 900 MTon revolving deep-water cranes.

The offshore installation works are anticipated to commence in July/August 2014.

With the current Ithaca Stella mooring project already in preparation, the Fairplayer will execute Western Isles this summer in a continuous offshore North Sea campaign.  Subsequent schedule synergy saves valuable project cost, time and resources.

Manager of Commerce Offshore, Roddy Lafontaine says; “This award allows for a robust North Sea installation campaign with the opportunities to materialize synergy. Western Isles will give us more experience in operating the harsher environment of the northern North Sea.”

I would like to sincerely thank Subsea 7 for the confidence placed in Jumbo and we are very much looking forward to working together to a successful project completion.

Western Isles Development Project (WIDP)

The Dana operated Western Isles field is located in Northern  North Sea, UK Block 210/24a, situated 90 km to the North East of Shetland.  The water depth at site is approximately 160m. The WIDP will be developed using subsea wells tied back to a centrally located FPSO. Oil will be exported by shuttle tanker and gas will be exported through a dedicated pipeline to the existing Tern platform.

Dana’s WIPD partner is Cieco. First oil production is expected in Q3, 2015.

Welcome aboard my little boat: Dwarfed by the world’s biggest cruise liner, Queen Mary 2’s captain perches on the bow of his vast ship

 News, Shipping  Comments Off on Welcome aboard my little boat: Dwarfed by the world’s biggest cruise liner, Queen Mary 2’s captain perches on the bow of his vast ship
Mar 162014
 

It took months of strategic and safety planning to work out how to get Captain Oprey onto the bulbous bow, which helps to stabilise the ship and streamline movement, and dips in and out of the water depending on currents and swell. But it was an idea too good to pass up.

Quen Mary 01 075-16-03-2014‘When I suggested we photograph the captain standing on the bulbous bow, they all looked at me like I was a tiny bit mad, but the fact it hadn’t been done was why we had to do it,’ photographer James Morgan told MailOnline. Mr Morgan was in Sydney last week when he got a call that the conditions in Bali were perfect for the shoot and so he hurried to the Indonesian island to capture the images. However, by the time he arrived the conditions had worsened and he spent a ‘nervous five or six hours on the bridge’, before the weather calmed and they were able to get the captain safely onto the bulbous bow. Mr Morgan said ‘safety was paramount’ and they used two safety boats to transport Captain Oprey to the bow.

‘For me, the lines, the shapes, the curves of the Queen Mary 2, make her the most amazing ocean liner in the world, she really is,’ he said.He took the shot from a small boat floating in front of the Queen Mary 2. Mr Morgan, who has been taking photos for Cunard, who own the Queen Mary 2, for ten years, says he wanted to take photographs for the anniversary of the liner that would showcase her beauty.

The Queen Mary 2 accommodates 2,620 passengers and 1,253 crew. In her first 10 years of operation, the ocean liner has undertaken more than 420 voyages including 200 transatlantic crossings.

She is currently completing a round-the-world journey to celebrate the tenth anniversary, culminating with a large celebration in Southampton in May.

In order to capture the size of the liner, the Sydney-based photographer used a very wide angle lens on his Nikon camera.

For Captain Oprey it was an experience he will never forget.

Quen Mary 02 075-16-03-2014

‘The captain was very, very, very excited to be part of it. It’s somewhere he’s never been; he’s always 12 storeys above conducting his team from the bridge,’ said Mr Morgan.

‘I talked to him afterwards and he did tell me he felt very alone and very isolated being where he was.’ Source : dailymail.  SOURCE: DMNC
