Shipping News Feature
INDONESIA – Hansa Heavy Lift (HHL) has successfully transported two dozen reels, as well as a range of subsea equipment for the Jangkrik Complex Project, off the coast of Indonesia. The HHL Richards Bay picked up the cargo on behalf of client Technip from the ports of Rosyth, Le Trait and Tanjung Langsat before discharging the cargo at Balikpapan, Indonesia onto the offshore vessel Viking Neptun, in five mobilisations. Henry Woo, Head of Asia Pacific, HHL, 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.”

Ahead of commencing the project, the stowage plan had to be prepared in accordance with the different loading ports and a pre-defined discharge sequence to follow the offshore installation procedure, without shifting any cargo unit. During the final move, HHL transferred 19 empty reels to the Viking Neptun and loaded all the subsea equipment, while the remaining reels and equipment were discharged in Tanjung Langsat.
