Teras Offshore, along with Global Maritime and ASL Shipyard in Batam, Indonesia announced the completion of full height jacking trials of the Teras Sunrise. The trials were completed on February 7 and mark another successful milestone in the Teras Sunrise reactivation project.

The Teras Sunrise is the second "Service Jack" design developed by Global Maritime. The vessel is a jack-up construction vessel with a payload of up to 7,200 metric tons, 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-metric-ton pedestal cranes, a helideck and six thruster DP2 dynamic positioning system for independent operations offshore. 

In addition to designing the Teras Sunrise, Global Maritime has also been providing technical support to the owners, Teras Offshore, during the reactivation project. Working closely with Teras Offshore, Global Maritime was able to use their in-depth knowledge of the vessel and systems to help ensure the reactivation work ran smoothly.

Taking advantage of its extensive geographical network, Global Maritime's 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 explained, "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.
