SAS Gouda BV in The Netherlands has signed a supply contract for the engineering, manufacturing and delivery of a complete pipe handling system for a Heavy Derrick/Lay Barge to be used by China National Offshore Oil Company.

Friede Goldman Halter has purchased the pipe handling equipment for a new derrick/lay barge. Their subsidiary Yantai Raffles Shipyard will build the barge at their yard in Yantai, Peoples Republic of China.

The pipe handling system includes a turnkey system for handling of four 48" concrete coated pipe joints, each with a maximum weight of 30 metric tonnes.

The system consists of longitudinal rollers, a transverse conveyor system, line-up units, deck support rollers and pipe track supports. It is designed for and has provision for future installation of a double joint system. The system will be delivered complete with a skid mounted hydraulic power unit and a control console for easy operation of the equipment.

The company says delivery time is very important to the client and critical for the project. The equipment is scheduled for delivery to the shipyard in China in November this year. The complete barge will be ready for operation by the end of March 2001.
