    Mighty Servant 3 performs first float-over and deck mating

    News // April 25, 2003
    Heavy lift specialist Dockwise says it has installed a topside onto a pre-installed jacket by using a semi-submersible heavy transport vessel.

    The Mighty Servant 3 successfully installed the TotalFinaElf AMP1 fully integrated topside onto a pre-installed jacket in the Amenam Kpono field, offshore Port Harcourt, Nigeria.

    The company was awarded a contract for the job in October 2000 by Upstream Constructors International FZCO of Jebel Ali, UAE, the contract including transportation and installation of the AMP1 topside.

    The transportation part of the job included a skid-on loading operation at J Ray McDermott Middle East construction yard in Jebel Ali, and subsequently transportation - via Cape of Good Hope - to Nigeria.

    The installation comprised a float-over and mating operation using a combination of the carrier's ballast system and the so-called 'UniDeck Concept'.

    More details of this interesting operation will follow in a subsequent issue of Offshore Shipping Online.
