Hansa fulfils Cape Three Points transport
ACCRA, April 19, 2018 – Hansa Heavy Lift has completed subsea equipment transport for the Offshore Cape Three Points project, the company announced Wednesday.
The equipment included vertical reels, a horizontal carousel loaded with flexible products, steel flying leads loaded on cassettes, a flowline end termination sled, subsea isolation valves, and other subsea equipment. It was carried to Takoradi, Ghana, in three shipments by the HHL Rhine and HHL Richards Bay vessels.
The project required precise positioning of the cargo, project engineer Tom Kroeger said. “This was particularly the case for the 500-tonne carousel on deck, which needed to be stored in a specific position to cover all supporting girders of the hatch cover to ensure sufficient load spreading,” he added.
The Offshore Cape Three Points development is an integrated oil and gas project located in the Tano Basin, around 60 kilometres off Ghana’s coast. It is operated by Eni Ghana Exploration and Production in a licence area of around 694 square kilometres in the Gulf of Guinea.
