Jumbo delivers pancakes

May 23 - Jumbo's vessel Fairpartner has carried 11 foundation decks for Estaleiros Do Brasil Ltda (EBR) from Iskenderun, Turkey to Rio Grande in Brazil.

The foundation decks, which are known as 'pancakes', were stacked in threes, with the largest deck weighing 386 tonnes and measuring 22 m x 35 m x 4.5 m.

Jumbo explained that the lifting and shipping of the foundation decks requires extensive engineering and careful load spreading for ocean transportation.

The foundation decks are part of Petrobas' operation to convert four very large crude carrier (VLCC) vessels into the hulls of floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels, which will operate in the Santos Basin pre-salt.

Jumbo will transport six modules for the same project from Laem Chabang, Thailad to Rio Grande in the beginning of 2015.
