Jumbo has been awarded a North Sea FPSO mooring, installation and hook-up contract by EnQuest.

EnQuest is redeveloping the Ardmore and Duncan fields as Alma and Galia respectively. The project scope is the mooring spread installation and FPSO tow out and hook up. This will be the first offshore project in which Jumbo will act as the main contractor and not as a subcontractor.

EnQuest is redeveloping the Alma and Galia fields, located in Blocks 30/24, 30/25 and 30/29, 310km south-east of Aberdeen in the UK North Sea. The fields will be brought on stream in 2013 using the Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel ‘EnQuest Producer’, formerly known as the ‘Uisge Gorm’. This FPSO is currently under refurbishment at a yard in Hamburg, Germany.

Jumbo’s Heavy Lift Vessel Fairplayer will install the mooring spread for the ‘EnQuest Producer’ in the middle of 2013. Utilizing the enormous hold and the onboard 900t mast cranes Jumbo’s Fairplayer takes all equipment on board, transits to site and installs all equipment in one go. To ensure station keeping, the Fairplayer’s Dynamic Positioning System (DP2) will be used during installation activities.

Jumbo awarded the FPSO tow-out and hook-up scope to Boskalis Offshore - Marine Contracting (formerly SMIT Marine Projects). Boskalis Offshore Business Unit Manager, Mr. Vogelaar said: ‘We are pleased with the confidence both EnQuest and Jumbo are having in our capabilities to assist Jumbo in this interesting project and look forward to a safe and reliable execution.’
