The Gina Krog jacket left the Heerema Vlissingen yard, the Dutch contractor has informed through its social media.
According to the company, the jacket set sail on Friday, June 19, for its final offshore destination in the Norwegian part of the North Sea.
The Gina Krog field development is a gas, condensate and oil field, located about 30 kilometers northwest of Sleipner.
The field will be developed with a fixed platform in a water depth of 116 meters and will be tied into the Sleipner facilities for gas export with oil being transported by tankers.
Weighing 17.000 tons with a height of 142 meters, a footprint of 60 x 50 meters and a top of 40 x 30 meter, the Gina Krog jacket is the largest launch jacket ever built at Heerema Fabrication Group’s Vlissingen yard.
In December 2013, Heerema celebrated the ceremonial first cut steel of the Gina Krog jacket, for its client Statoil.
The project award to HFG in February 2013 followed the successfully completed FEED study of the jacket by HFG Engineering.
The following video shows a successful load out of the 17.000-ton jacket onto the barge, performed on March 28-29 at Vlissingen yard.
