Transportation and installation of a FSRU Mooring System
Jumbo’s Offshore division was awarded the contract by Sapura to perform the transportation and installation of the FSRU’s Mooring System, along with project management and engineering services. The mooring system consisted of an anchor base and a rotating yoke arm filled with water and barite ballast.
The structures were loaded in Batam, Indonesia, and subsequently transported and installed at the offshore site by one of our offshore Heavy Lift Cargo Vessels, Fairplayer or Jumbo Javelin. The work was expected to be completed by 31 December 2018.
The Port of Sergipe project consisted of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal featuring a 170,000 cm floating storage regasification unit (FSRU), a 6.5-kilometer natural gas pipeline, a 1,516-megawatt combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plant, and a 33-kilometer electricity transmission line. The annual electricity generation of this project was estimated to provide power to approximately one million individual residential consumers. The sponsors of this project were Golar Power, a global integrated LNG company, and Ebrasil, a regional thermal plant operator.
