The gas modules were exceeding 11,000rt and weighing around 1,000tns in total, with the heaviest single lift being around 550tns. There were significant challenges related to the time period to plan the operations due to external delays and a lack of availability of certain assets. A nearby salvage operation also took place prior to our lifts which required us to work hard to ensure access to a 1,800tn sheer leg crane. Language barriers, variations in safety culture and technical documentation requirements were also barriers we had to overcome.
“The project was delivered on time and on budget and could not have been executed better! Both the transportation and installation of the module was impressive”
The key factors in the success of this project was detailed planning with creative solutions, cultural knowledge, the selection of suitable partners and a hands-on presence throughout the process and operations. Marinetrans has a proven track record of similar transports in similar environments and are very familiar with the challenges that can arise. The modules were delivered in the early part of the delivery window in Singapore, and were safely discharged directly from HLV to the gas vessel.
