Aqualis starts survey program for floater topsides transport

Offshore staff

OSLO, Norway – Cantex Global Logistics has contracted Aqualis Offshore to provide marine warranty surveyor services.

These apply to the transportation of the FPSO P67 and P70 topsides modules from various Brazilian ports to COOEC’s yard in Qingdao, China.

Aqualis’ services relate to the load out and sail away of the transport vessels in Brazil, and the subsequent discharge of the modules in China.

In total 29 topsides modules will be transported in eight shipments, with a maximum module weight of around 1,650 metric tons (1,818 tons).

Aqualis is providing services for six of the shipments. The company has already completed the marine warranty surveyor services for load-out and sail away for one vessel, and will oversee the load-out for another three vessels in Brazil in a few weeks’ time.

The remaining two shipments from Brazil will be completed this summer.

Cantex Global specializes in global logistics of heavy and large cargos, especially in the offshore oil and gas industry.
