Jumbo Vision Transports Subsea Modules for Julia Project

Ingleside Texas Julia Project

By MarEx 2015-10-29 11:47:10

This month, Heavy Lift Vessel Jumbo Vision transported subsea pump modules for long term client McDermott from the OneSubsea facility in Horsoy, Norway to Ingleside, Texas USA.  The cargo consisted of several modules, with a maximum cargo lift weight of nearly 350t, which will be installed in the deepwater Julia Field in the Gulf of Mexico.  Due to the sensitive nature of the cargo Jumbo worked closely together with the client and managed the project from A to Z for a safe and undamaged delivery of the structures.

Tailor Made Solution

Special attention was given to all aspects of the work, including QHSE, loadout and lifting details, sea fastening, and offloading.  The execution of the work was a success as a direct result of the dedication and performance of the project and operations personnel. A tailor made solution was developed for handling the cargo and for each heavy lift a toolbox meeting was held on board. The toolbox meetings in combination with daily progress meetings with the client ensured that all parties were fully briefed on the operation.

Planning 

Jumbo’s engineering and project management team planned all aspects of the execution in compliance with the end-client project specifications and global practices. For example: conform industry standard, grounding was brought in place before loading the subsea structures to the lower hold. This measure guaranteed that during sea fastening welding operations no strait currents would run through the highly sensitive components.

Discharge Operations

Offloading of the sensitive cargo was safely and successfully completed with support from Kiewit Offshore Services at their Ingleside, Texas facility.  Each module lift was carefully reviewed and discussed to ensure execution was performed as planned.
