Jumbo’s Offshore division has been awarded a contract by Sapura to perform the transportation and installation of the FSRU’s mooring system as well as project management and engineering services, for UTE Porto de Sergipe 1 Combined Cycle Power Plant off the coast of Aracaju, Sergipe, Brazil.

The mooring system comprises an anchor base and a rotating yoke arm filled with water and barite ballast.

The structures will be loaded in Batam, Indonesia, and subsequently transported and installed at the offshore site by one of the offshore Heavy Lift Cargo Vessels, Fairplayer or Jumbo Javelin.

The work is expected to be completed by December 31, 2018.

Roddy Lafontaine, VP Offshore for Jumbo said: “In continuation of last year’s LNG projects such as Hilli in Cameroon and Moheshkhali in Bangladesh, this award enables Jumbo to again provide our unique FSRU installation solutions, this time in Brazil. We would like to sincerely thank Sapura, and also Golar, for the confidence placed in Jumbo and we are very much looking forward to working together towards a successful project completion.”

Sapura Energy Do Brasil was awarded the contract to undertake the engineering, procurement and construction related to the pipeline for UTE Porto de Sergipe 1 Combined Cycle Power Plant, the transportation and installation of the FSRU’s mooring system including riser and umbilical, and the hook-up of the FSRU/riser/umbilical.

The Port of Sergipe project comprises a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal with a 170,000 cm floating storage regasification unit (FSRU), a 6.5 kilometer natural gas pipeline, a 1,516 megawatt combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plant, and a 33 kilometer electricity transmission line. Its annual electricity generation will be equivalent to approximately one million individual residential consumers reached.

The sponsors of this project are Golar Power and Ebrasil.
