Hansa Heavy Lift has successfully transported 24 reels and associated subsea equipment for the Jangkrik Complex Project located off the coast of Indonesia.

The company used the HHL Richards Bay vessel to pick-up the cargo at three different ports, which are Rosyth in the UK, Le Trait in France, and Tanjung Langsat in Malaysia.

The vessel discharged the reels and subsea equipment in Balikpapan, Indonesia onto the offshore vessel Viking Neptun in five mobilisations.

Two more offshore vessels namely Seismic Supporter and the Deep Orient were used to load and offload some of the equipment from HHL Richards Bay.

Hansa Heavy Lift Asia Pacific head Henry Woo said: “This was a complex project, which required a very careful planning process, as well as continuous communication with all parties involved from the start.

“Our P2-1400 vessel type was the ideal ship for this project, as she provided enough space to stow and handle the cargo and enough crane capacity for discharging.

“The successful completion of this project demonstrates our ability to handle sensitive cargo during all stages of transport, whilst providing a safe work environment and complying fully with very high offshore standards and requirements.”

The company has devised a stowage plan in advance in accordance with the different loading ports and a pre-defined discharge sequence to follow the offshore installation procedure.

In the final delivery, Hansa Heavy Lift transferred 19 empty reels to the Viking Neptun and loaded all the subsea equipment.

The remaining reels and equipment were offloaded on the discharged in Tanjung Langsat.

Hansa Heavy Lift also completed additional engineering analyses during the planning stage that included a finite element analysis to assess the strength of the vessel’s deck, as well as regular rigging, seafastening and stability calculations.

"This was a complex project, which required a very careful planning process, as well as continuous communication with all parties involved from the start."

TechnipFMC deputy package manager Stephane Catroux said: "TECHNIP is delighted to have had the opportunity to work with Hansa Heavy Lift during the recent successfully completed offshore risers and static umbilicals installation campaign for Jangkrik Complex Project.

"We worked very closely from the start with Hansa Heavy Lift’s in-house team of technical engineers, whose strong expertise and operational experience ensured this challenging project was completed safely and on time.

"We were likewise impressed by Hansa’s very adaptable ships and the team’s attention to detail, which gave us confidence and ease of mind every step of the way."

Hansa Heavy Lift provides transport and installation services of project cargo in the subsea oil and gas market and offshore windfarm sector.
