Receipt and Storage of Holdback and Mooring Piles

In July 2020 Core received 15 Holdback and Mooring Suction Piles. This scope of work included unloading the piles from a vessel and moving them into our dock storage space. The pile weights were from 110 MTs to 252 MTs each. Some of the suction piles had to be twin crane lifted to storage. Core is currently supporting the 3D survey of each piles dimensions on our dock. Core will install the deployment rigging onto these piles and load them out for installation in the first week of August for the Mad Dog 2 Platform installation in the Gulf of Mexico. Core’s storage and heavy lift abilities allow us to support and assist subsea and offshore projects.


Talos Umbilical Reel

In June 2020 Core Industries offloaded a 350 Metric Ton reel from a Derrick Barge and staged it in our dock storage area. Core loaded the reel onto the Seven Pacific for installation Subsea.  We then unloaded the empty reel from the Seven Pacific. We will load the empty reel onto a barge for return to the Umbilical supplier’s facility. Core provided all necessary equipment and manpower to complete this job.


Shell- Princess Flexible Reels

Core offloaded reels from a vessel using the 850 T Heavy Lift Crane and staged them on the dock. The scope of work included removing the packing from the end terminations and installing new lubricants, seals, orings and Handling Heads on each.

The Handling Heads provide a means for the Flexible Pipes to be lifted by the ends and lowered into the ocean floor for connection to the submersed flow lines that will deliver the Crude from the seafloor to the surface platform. This scope of work is the final process of readiness for the flexible reels to be installed Subsea. At a later date, Core will load these reels onto another vessel for installation.

SPI/Mobile Pulley Works: A-Frame Loadout

After a successful dredge ladder loadout in early November 2019, SPI/Mobile Pulley Works contracted Core to utilize and load out an A-frame onto a barge for delivery to their client. Berard transported three A-frame parts from SPI/Mobile Pulley Works to Core’s private port facility. Core worked alongside, providing crane services and other critical assistance, MPW to utilize a 100’ X 100’ area on the main dock to assemble the three pieces of the A-frame. The two leg pieces weighed approximately 53,000 lbs each with the main A-frame cross member piece weighing approximately 132,000 lbs.
