ALE completes offshore scope in the Caspian
ALE has completed the offshore and marine operations they are undertaking as part of a major offshore platform project in Azerbaijan.
ALE was contracted for a complex scope of work, involving the load-out of two jackets, weighing and jack-up of the topsides, strand jack skidding load-outs, ballasting and mooring as well as the offshore floatovers for two topsides.
The global heavy lifting contractor commenced the first stage of operations in July 2016 with the ballasting load-outs of the Production and Riser (PR) and the Living Quarters and Utilities (QU) platform jackets, weighing 13,977t and 12,369t respectively.
ALE was contracted by the jacket constructor BOS Shelf to provide the full external ballast system and engineering, as well as the ballast system design and calculations. The jackets were loaded-out onto the same STB-1 launch barge, measuring 153m x 45m x 12m, using the client’s push/pull skidding system.
