Myanmar – Yetagun – KTI 150

Project description

The Yetagun FSO has been operating on location in the Yetagun Gas and Condensate Field offshore Myanmar in the Andaman Sea, since April 2000, and the first oil has been accomplished on the 7th of May 2000. The initial design life of 15 years was due to expire in May 2015.

As part of the design life extension of the Yetagun FSO beyond 2015, SBM ordered our KTI 150 linear winch for replacement of the Mooring Chains. SBM required a winch to disconnect the old chain sections and reconnect new chain sections onto an external turret mooring system.

Before the KTI 150 linear winch spread was airfreighted to the FSO, Bezemer designed, manufactured and tested an interface frame between the linear winch and anchor point on the FSO. Due to the aft ship position of the crane all of the equipment needed to be skidded to the fore ship by means of using a transport roller system.
