After successful completion of the Coatzacoalcos Immersed Tunnel, dustpan dredger Hollandsch Diep (Boskalis Dragamex) and immersion catamarans Calypso & Neptune (Volker Construction International) have been loaded by Jumbo Jubilee, to be transported back to Moerdijk, the Netherlands. Boskalis and Volker thank Jumbo for the good cooperation that lead to this smooth operation.
During the first half of 2013, Jumbo shipped 44 locomotives to Indonesia in four shipments.
Each unit was lxwxh= 19.09m x 2.98m x 3.96m and weighed 116.8 Ton. It was not only the shipping which was carried out by Jumbo, but also the more complex job to transport the Locomotives from the Heavy Lift Vessel and placed them in the rail track, which was approx. 2 kms away.

Last week Jumbo successfully completed the deployment of five subsea structures for PetroSA’s Ikhwezi project, offshore South Africa. The installation of the five structures, weighing between 35 and 185t and measure up to 14 x 8 x 5.5 m, was executed by Jumbo’s DP2 Heavy Lift Vessel Fairplayer. The project was awarded on an intervention basis and Jumbo once again proved its flexibility and ‘can do’ mentality.
The Ikhwezi project is a subsea development that ties into the FA-platform and is set to play an instrumental role in sustaining the life of PetroSA’s gas-to-liquids (GTL) refinery in Mossel Bay, Republic South Africa. It involves tapping into gas reserves in the FO field, which is located 40km south-east of PetroSA’s F-A production platform off South Africa’s south coast.
Scope of work
Because the project was awarded on an intervention basis Jumbo had very limited time to complete the preparations. The structures had to be installed before the beginning of the winter in South Africa. The weather and sea states off the coast are known to become very hostile in the winter period. The Fairplayer was mobilised in Rotterdam (The Netherlands), e.g. taking Jumbo’s offshore accommodation unit onboard and preparing its Deepwater Deployment System (DDS).
Lift, ship, install. All in one go
The Ikhwezi subsea installation project confirms Jumbo added-value concept of providing a single solution for loading, transporting and installing subsea structures in water depths up to 3,000m.
One of Jumbo’s heavy lift & installation vessels, the Fairplayer, is in Rotterdam preparing for a subsea installation project.
Jumbo’s Fairplayer will be executing the installation of the mooring spread for the EnQuest Producer FPSO. This FPSO will be operating at the Alma and Galia fields, located in Blocks 30/24, 30/25 and 30/29, 310km south-east of Aberdeen in the UK North Sea.
Jumbo’s Fairplayer will utilize her enormous hold and the two onboard 900t mast cranes for the installation. All additional equipment, such as the pile driving template and hammer and ROVs will be placed on board during mobilisation. After mobilisation the vessel will only be making two voyages to the offshore location.
The first voyage Jumbo transports the anchor piles and bottom chains to the field. There, the Fairplayer installs the anchor piles making use of the template, hammer and ROVs.
After that the bottom chains are pre-tensioned and laid out on the seabed. For the second voyage the vessel loads several reels with spiral strand wire and the top chains. In the offshore field the Fairplayer’s crew connects the chain and wire and situates them on the seabed to be picked up for the FPSO hook up.
Jumbo is the main contractor for the EnQuest Producer installation project. The complete project scope consists out of the fabrication of the anchor piles, the mooring spread installation and FPSO tow out and hook up. Jumbo subcontracted the tow out and hook up to Boskalis Offshore.

Jumbo has successfully completed the TP-installation for the Anholt Offshore Wind Farm, off the Danish coast. Jumbo’s DP2 Heavy Lift Vessel Jumbo Javelin installed the 111 TP’s with a record-breaking installation rate of 3 TP’s per day.
The transport, installation, access to the TP’s and grouting was done without any Lost Time Injuries (LTI=0).
This video animation shows how Jumbo Offshore with its DP2 Heavy Lift vessel Fairplayer, equipped with a deepwater deployment system can install 14 suction anchors and all anchor chains in one voyage. All suction anchors are installed at a water depth of -380 m.

A beach jetty was constructed to land all the heavy pieces near the Power Station, in order to avoid all obstacles (bridges, overhead wires, culverts etc.) en route from the commercial port of Lumut. All work was performed for ABB-Baden, Switzerland.
