Offshore staff

HIXON, UK – ALE has reached the final stages of loadout of the WHP jacket, topsides, and bridge for the Petronas Carigali project.

ALE’s Malaysian branch recently performed the roll-up operation of the CPP jacket outer bend, using the standjacks as a holdback mechanism for the first time at the Malaysian Marine Heavy Engineering West Shipyard in Pasir Gudang.

The factored weight of the jacket outer bend was 1,533 tons, and the operation was executed using five crawler cranes to lift the jacket from 0º to 90º. During the operation, three sets of ALE SJ70 strand jack systems were used as the hold-back mechanism. The operation continued with skidding activity before final fit-up and start of welding.

“We are now at the final stages with the shifting of the LQ for the CPP topside and the supply of the mooring winch for the topside, bridge and CPP jacket expected by the end of April,” said Mohd Syafiq Suziliman, ALE junior project manager.
