October 15 - Jumbo's heavy lift vessel Fairplayer has shipped three FPSO modules from Laem Chabang in Thailand to São José do Norte, Brazil for Estaleiros do Brasil (EBR).
The FPSO modules each measured around 22 m x 17.5 m x 30 m, with the heaviest unit weighing in at 1,000 tonnes.
Jumbo project manager Boudewijn van der Garden said: "Fairplayer is made for operations like this. The measurements of the modules provided an optimum use of our vessel's lifting capacity.
"We applied special lifting gear and a rigging design to meet the specific loading requirements for the modules. In addition we also modified the transportation beams into suitable load spreaders."
