Foss Delivers Modular Cargo to Russia
Foss Maritime Company has delivered 36 pre-fabricated modules that were part of a multi-year sealift of specialized structure and components needed to construct an oil production facility at a remote project site in the Russian Far East. This remote oil production site is located near Chayvo Bay on the Northeast tip of Sakhalin Island. Located north of the Japanese Island of Hokkaido, Sakhalin Island is separated from Russian mainland by the Tartar Strait. The project was safely completed ahead of schedule despite complex logistical requirements and many environmental challenges such as ice, harsh storms and sea conditions.
The delivery marks the completion of a project that began in 2003. The delivery of 36 modules include some up to 1800 tons, and measure at 280 x 45 x 85 ft.
