The Mv Jumbo Javelin has recently successfully undertaken a cabotage project in Brazil.

Edit_IMG_1099The 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.

IMG_1030The 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. Continue reading “Jumbo Javelin transports modules in Brazilian cabotage project” »

For the lift, the 2,000 tonne capacity crawler was configured with a 60 metre heavy-duty boom, 340 tonnes of turntable counterweight and 11 tonnes of carbody counterweight. A 640 tonne superlift counterweight and 30 metre radius superlift were also used. The load was lifted at 14 metre radius where capacity is 1,577 tonnes. To help complete the lift a Manitowoc 21000 crawler crane provided assistance in tailing. Continue reading “XCMG sets new record for XGC28000 crawler” »

Six-legged ship lends a hand to building offshore wind farms

North Sea wind farm installations will soon get a hand from a six-legged ship capable of raising itself over water as deep as 75m. Lifting the ship above the water is necessary to stabilize it as workers assemble the tower, nacelle, and rotor.

The Pacific Orca is powered by eight diesel-electric generator sets, each rated at 3.2 MW. A dynamic positioning class-two control system maintains the position and heading of the vessel. For maneuvering, the vessel is fitted with four 3.8 MW azimuth stern thrusters, two 2.2 MW bow retractable azimuth thrusters, and two 2.2 MW bow tunnel thrusters.

“The Pacific Orca is the largest wind farm installation ship ever built,” says Jan Schreiber, Germanischer Lloyd’s (GL) new Ship Type Expert for Offshore Service and Working Vessels. “Her capacity is enormous. She can carry and install up to 12, 3.6-MW wind turbines.” For future projects, the ship will also be able to install larger turbines, those with a rated output of up to 10 MW.
