Strainstall Moring Solution for Pengerang Deepwater Terminal
Strainstall, part of James Fisher and Sons, has been awarded a contract with the Japanese Penta Ocean-Toa joint venture, for its mooring solution to be installed at the Pengerang Independent Deepwater Petroleum Terminal (PIDPT) in Malaysia.
The phase two development of the terminal, comprising 11 new jetties, will see 74 mooring systems, along with Strainstall’s DockAlert berthing system, installed to provide mooring and berthing operations.
PIDPT is the first independent deepwater terminal in Southeast Asia set to become a strategic facility that includes oil refineries, petrochemical plants as well as a crude and LNG import terminal and storage, in a major offshore trading area which will support high demand in this rapidly growing region.
The company said it has already provided detailed consultation on the mooring arrangement of the jetties, providing advice on the optimum location and orientation of the hooks for mooring operations, to ensure successful delivery and implementation.
Simon Everett, managing director at Strainstall, explained: “We’re extremely proud to be involved in such a high profile project, delivering an advanced mooring solution that will ensure the safety and security of the terminal’s operations. Our experienced team has worked very closely with the joint venture, providing guidance and consultaton to ensure seamless installation and commission, which will take place over the course of the next year.”
