Jumbo Sets Up Moheshkhali FSRU Mooring System
Heavy lift shipping and offshore transportation & installation contractor Jumbo has completed work on the first LNG import terminal in Bangladesh.
In 2017 Jumbo was awarded a contract by Geocean for the Moheshkhali Project. The Moheshkhali floating liquefied natural gas import terminal is being developed offshore Moheshkhali Island in the Bay of Bengal, Bangladesh.
The Moheshkhali floating LNG import terminal will include a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU), a subsea buoy system and a subsea pipeline, which will connect the terminal to an onshore pipeline system.
Jumbo’s job was to transport and install the mooring system for the FSRU. This involved installing 8 suction piles/anchors, 1 pipeline end manifold (PLEM) and 1 Pad as well as scouring protection.
Mobilization began in mid-December 2017 with the installation execution going ahead in early January 2018. Works on the project have now been completed by the Jumbo offshore team and crew aboard the Jumbo Javelin.
Tom Rijnders, project manager at Jumbo said: “Conditions on this project were at times challenging due to strong currents and poor visibility, however, the crew on board managed to perform outstandingly with a lot of ingenuity and persistence to complete the project within specifications.”
