Jumbo has been awarded the transportation and installation contract for a FSRU mooring system including riser and umbilical, off the coast of Aracaju, Sergipe, Brazil.
Jumbo’s Offshore division was awarded the contract by Sapura to perform the transportation and installation of the FSRU’s mooring system as well as project management and engineering services. The mooring system comprises an anchor base and a rotating yoke arm filled with water and barite ballast. The structures will be loaded in Batam, Indonesia, and subsequently transported and installed at the offshore site by one of the company’s offshore Heavy Lift Cargo Vessels, Fairplayer or Jumbo Javelin. The work is expected to be completed by 31 December 2018.
Roddy Lafontaine, VP Offshore for Jumbo commented:
“In continuation of last year’s LNG projects such as Hilli in Cameroon and Moheshkhali in Bangladesh, this award enables Jumbo to again provide our unique FSRU installation solutions, this time in Brazil. We would like to sincerely thank Sapura, and also Golar, for the confidence placed in Jumbo and we are very much looking forward to working together towards a successful project completion.”
