Performed simultaneously in two yards in India and one in Oman
Lift & Shift India Pvt (LSPL) has completed the loadout of 17 modules for Larsen & Toubro at their yards in India (Hazira, Gujarat and Katupalli in Chennai and Tamil Nadu) and in Oman at Sohar.
The modules and related cargoes were for the B-127 and HRP fields in Mumbai High and Yetugon in Myanmar. The B 127 project included four decks and four jackets, while the HRP project had three decks and three jackets, Lift & Shifts said in a statement. The Yetugon project consisted of one jacket, one deck, one crane and four sets of piles. The loadouts were done simultaneously.
LSPL provided a set of 100-plus axles and barges at each location. The jackets weighed from 1,227 tons to 3,500 tons. The 140-meter-long Yetugon jacket loadout was the first time a jacket was loaded out using a skidding technique, LSPL said in a statement. The company imported heavy-duty winches and a ballast monitoring system in addition to the strand jacks. The operation lasted 36 hours, which included moving the jacket from the yard to the jetty over 140 meters and then skidding it onto a 400-class barge.
The loadouts were completed over six months.
