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.

04 Sep 2013

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.
