SAL Heavy Lift to shift giant gas platforms from Batam

Singapore: SAL Heavy Lift, through its wholly owned Singapore subsidiary, SAL Heavy Lift Singapore, has signed a major new contract with Australia's BAM Clough for shipping and deployment of LNG and LPG product loading platforms for the INPEX-operated Ichthys LNG Project, near Darwin, Australia.

BAM Clough is delivering the Product Loading Jetty and Module Offloading Facility packages of works for the project’s onshore LNG facilities under subcontracts awarded by engineering, procurement and construction contractor JKC Australia LNG.

The two platforms, being built in Batam, Indonesia, will be among the largest structures ever handled by a heavy lift vessel.

The LNG platform will weigh in at a hefty 1,080 tonnes with dimensions of 40 x 39 x 8 m.

The LPG platform will be even more substantial at 1,320 tonnes with dimensions of 45 x 40 x 8 m.

The first of the two shipments from Batam will take place mid-2014.   [27/05/14]
