935 mt turret mooring buoy

A 935 mt turret mooring buoy on a 95 mt grillage in Batam, Indonesia, was expected in Stord, Norway for the Kraken FPSO. The cargo owner chose BigLift because of our engineering capabilities. FEM analysis and 3D models showed the deck strength to be sufficient for the weight and open hatch sailing proved to be the solution for safe shipping to Norway. The limited water depth in Batam was no problem for Happy River, a special shallow draught vessel, and BigLift’s engineers devised a satisfactory mooring configuration that enabled the vessel to moor further away from the quay, which was in shallow waters.
