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.

Jumbo has recently completed her activities in the first stage of the Wiggins Island Coal Export Terminal Project in Queensland, Australia.

18 Nov 2013

Faripartner_lift_dusk-01The export terminal, when completed, will represent one of the largest such facilities in the world.

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. Continue reading “JUMBO completes first stage of Wiggins Island Coal Terminal project” »

The crew of a Subsea 7 vessel off the coast of Equatorial Guinea have become an internet sensation thanks to their homemade music video.

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.

Jumbo has successfully completed the transportation of the first of two flexible pipe lay towers to Okpo, South Korea, for their client, Real/Imeca.

17 Sep 2013

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.

KIKI9749The 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. Continue reading “Jumbo books 4 sailings with Pipe lay towers” »

The Fairlane collected the cargo from the Port of Dalian, People’s Republic of China, where it was apparent from the outset that the successful completion of the operation would require navigation of a unique set of challenges.

DSC01999The 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.
