Load-out and float-off of Jack-Up Rig, Vietnam

ALE was contracted to carry out the load-out and float-off of Vietnam’s first jack-up rig in Vung Tau Vietnam.

ALE successfully completed the load-out and float-off of the 9,400te drilling rig by use of skid beams and skidshoes, load-out equipment including strand jacks and an external ballast system, and a semi-submersible barge and main tug.

The project was completed by skidding the jack-up rig to the quayside using ALE’s skid system. To enable the load-out onto the barge an external ballast system and equipment including strand jacks was used.

The semi-submersible barge transported the rig to its required location where the barge was submersed to allow for the float-off. All marine engineering required was carried out by ALE’s specialist Marine Engineering Division.

Watched closely and monitored by government officials including the Prime Minister, the project was a major milestone for Vietnam.
