On 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.
Subsea 7 is a seabed-to-surface engineering, construction and services contractor to the offshore energy industry worldwide.

When booking the cargo it became quickly apparent that the project execution would have a tight schedule.
First, due to the quay availability of Huisman’s premises Jumbo only had a two day window to load the unit and same had to be delivered on the 25th February in Sovik. Second, as from time of booking till project execution there where only 6 weeks to engineer this complicated transport.

The project was planned meticulously, to ensure efficient operations. At one stage 2 J-class vessels were sailing from China, one day apart, one with gantry equipment which was discharged to barges for further transport to site and one with wharf decks which where directly discharged at the currently developed quay where in the future the coal ships will berth and be loaded from. This berth is located well outside the island to have unrestricted access to deep water. Safety, as with everything carried out by Jumbo, was given the highest priority.
Work on the project commenced in May of this year, with the 1st of six consecutive voyages using mv Fairpartner.

Aberdeen man Darren Flynn enlisted the help of his shipmates on board the BOURBON PERIDOT to perform Toto’s 1983 hit Africa while at sea off Luba. Now the video has become a smash hit on Facebook, with oil barrels, pumps and even fish standing in for musical instruments as the vessel’s crew mime to the song.

Our own version of the music video for “Africa” by Toto we made on our boat in Equatorial Guinea in West Africa.
“I did the first couple of scenes with Subsea 7 guys, and then a couple of other guys on the boat thought it was good so they also wanted in,” he told Energy Voice. “As the thing progressed more and more people wanted in, from the captain to the company representative.” The 33-year-old, who works as an ROV pilot supervisor on the ship, shot the video on a camera he had taken with him to Equatorial Guinea to try and repair. “I got it fixed and thought I should do a couple of test videos,” he said.

Imeca received the order to develop the flexible pipelay system for the newly constructed Technip Oderbracht JV* pipe lay support vessels. The Joint Venture will charter the vessels to Petrobras, who will use them to install umbilical and flexible flowlines and risers to connect subsea wells to floating production units in waters up to over 2,500m deep offshore Brazil, including in the pre-salt area.
The project involved a series of four voyages for Jumbo, plus the engineering of a suitable outrigger frame, specific to the project, to handle the shipments. The initial phase was the collection of the first of two base structures from Gydnia, Poland. Jumbo chartered a vessel to undertake the first stage of the project, as, after the award of contract there was a limited space of time before project activity commenced. This meant that it was not possible to schedule one of Jumbo’s J-class vessels.

Jumbo is pleased to present the official footage from the launch of the first of the revolutionary new K3000 vessels. The Jumbo Kinetic, was launched on the 17th September from the Brodosplit Shipyard in Croatia. The new vessel, which represents the latest evolutionary step in the Jumbo fleet is both larger and stronger than its predecessors. For more information check out our K-Class animation at:
At Split, in Croatia, the first of the two vessels, the JUMBO KINETIC was launched. The weather conditions were perfect and those present report an exciting atmosphere and that proceedings went precisely according to plan.

Project management and Engineering will be carried out by Jumbo who will undertake collection of the materials in the port of Mersin Tasucu Seka in Turkey, transportation to the offshore location and installation.
The cargo was three modules, up to 400t in weight and each one reaching 17m in height. Jumbo was contracted to carry out the project by a consortium of two companies, Galvao Engineering and Mendes Junior Oil and Gas Construction, on behalf of Petrobas, who are looking to increase their capacity to export oil and gas from the country.
The voyage involved the collection of the modules from a barge at the port of Rio de Janeiro, followed by transportation to Petrobas’ private terminal TEBIG, in Angra dos Reis, in Rio de Janeiro state.

The merchants informed that a vessel with shallow draft capabilities would be required as water depth at the port of loading would at no time exceed 5.6m. This posed no problem as Jumbo vessels have a strong track record in demonstrating heavy lift capability at shallow draft.
A jetty can be built in half the time, when parts of the project are executed in parallel. Piling work can be done, while onshore fenders and deck sections are constructed.
