May 19 - Mammoet has completed the load-out of modules bound for the P66 floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel in Brazil.
A set of four modules, ranging in weight from 1,000 to 1,420 tonnes, was built by BJCHI in Sattahip, Thailand, and shipped by module carrier to Brazil for integration onto the hull of the FPSO.
Mammoet managed the logistics operation including chartering the module carrier Mega Trust, naval engineering, weighing the modules and a load-out at the fabrication yard in Thailand using 60 axle lines of SPMTs.
Reinder de Haan, commercial manager logistics sales at the Dutch heavy lift and transport specialist said: "Mammoet used its engineering skills and network of suppliers and carriers to ensure a flawless load-out and keep to the strict deadlines."
Seongjin Lee, project manager at BJHCI, added: "This project was very challenging from every aspect. Nothing was on our side in terms of the short project period, rare materials and long lead times. However, with good support from all BJCHI's sub-contractors, vendors and employees, as a team we finally made the load-out."
Another shipment is planned for the beginning of August 2016.
The end client, TUPI BV, is working on the development of the Lula Alto field, located in the Santos Basin in Brazil.
