Indonesia Shipyard Offshore Rig: Jacking Trial Successful
Teras Offshore, along with Global Maritime & ASL Shipyard in Batam, Indonesia announce the completion of full height jacking trials of the 'Teras Sunrise'.
The Teras Sunrise is the second 'Service Jack' design developed by Global Maritime, a jack-up construction vessel with a payload of up to 7,200 tonnes, outfitted with four jack-up legs for jacking operations in the North Sea in up to 80m water depth. She has accommodation for 160 persons with the option to increase to 260 using Pullman berths. She also has two 750 tonne pedestal cranes, a helideck and six thruster DP2 dynamic positioning system for independent operations offshore.
Taking advantage of its extensive geographical network, Global Maritime explain that its London and Singapore offices provided assistance in preparation for and during the jacking trials. This included carrying out the site specific assessment, preparing the jacking procedure, ballast plan and providing technical advice during the trials.
Global Maritime's project manager explains: "It has been great for us to see this project through from initial concept to final completion. Our close working relationships with Teras Offshore and ASL have been key in overcoming the inevitable challenges associated with a reactivation project. All parties have been 100% committed to making the project a success and we are incredibly proud to be involved."
The vessel sea trials are scheduled for March 2014 and the Teras Sunrise is expected to begin service in April 2014.
