Load-out of Pegaga CPP Jackets in Malaysia
Sarens performs weighing and load-out of 12060T jackets for Sapura Fabrication in Malaysia
September 2020

Sarens has always been the reference when it comes to handling challenging loads. Sapura Fabrication Sdn. Bhd. commissioned Sarens to carry out the weighing and load-out of the 12060T Pegaga CPP jackets in Lumut, Malaysia. This is the first jacket being transported for Mubadala Petroleum. 

Sarens was responsible for weighing and load-out (skidding, ballasting, and barge monitoring during the operation). Our team surveyed the entire site and recorded client specifications before preparing for the load-out.  Based on the results our engineering team designed the operation with latest drawings and calculations. 

Sarens decided to deploy 600T digicells with 800T weighing jacks, 4 x 588T strandjacks, 20 submersibles pumps, barge monitoring system, and 6 winches 50T.  

The jacket measuring 190m in length and 77m in width and weighing 12060T was safely skidded to final position in about seven hours. The weather and tide conditions posed a challenge but our team prepared few ballast calculations based on the date and tide variations to make sure the project was executed in the given time frame. 

According to the Operations Manager, Stephane Tradigo, “The time between the awarding of project and date of execution was very tight. We had to speedup our engineering, preparation of equipment. Delivery of strandwires become an issue, but it has been managed locally with the support from ours clients. The team worked in coordination and was safely able to complete the operation”.
