Offloading Clinker

In January 2021, Core discharged 22,000 metric tons of Clinker from ship to barges. This product was barged up river for cement manufacturing. The offloading of Clinker took approximately 3 days to complete.


Technip- Deep Star

In January 2021 Core provided Heavy Lift support for the demobilization of the Barracuda Project in Trinidad. The scope of work included unloading one 11.4 empty reel to be stored at Core’s facility. Core’s heavy lift, storage solutions, and proximity to the Gulf of Mexico allows us to assist in many offshore projects for various clients.


The Seven Vega

The Seven Vega is a new pipe lay vessel for the SS7 fleet. It was here on its maiden voyage to lay pipe in the Gulf of Mexico on the BP Manuel project. Core upended and loaded a suction pile on the deck. Core also provided support for mobilization and modifications to the deck. Core Industries was happy to host The Seven Vega for 2 weeks in December 2020.


Technip- Deep Blue

In December 2020 Technip’s vessel, The Deep Blue, was at Core Industries in support of the Thunderhorse project in the Gulf of Mexico. Core provided our Heavy lift Crane to load a large 11.4 Umbilical reel onto the Reel Drive System to be deployed. The Deep Blue was berthed at Core for 2 days.


Copper Slag Offload

In November 2020 Core Industries discharged approximately 42,000 metric tons of copper slag. The copper slag was discharged into hoppers, loaded into trucks and delivered to Core’s Client. This project was completed in 4 days. Core Industries ability to handle bulk material allows to complete the job efficiently and economically for every client.


SS7- Island Victory

The Island Victory was tasked with putting out the mooring lines and chains for SS7 on the Mad Dog 2 campaign in the Gulf of Mexico. This vessel was loaded with several 120,000 lb clumps of chain to be loaded into their below deck chain locker. Additionally, Core also loaded large spools of synthetic mooring lines on deck for deployment. It took approximately 1 week to complete the scope of work at our private port facility in Theodore, AL.


Technip- Barracuda: Unloading/loading 4 reels

Early October 2020 four Barracuda reels arrived on a heavy lift vessel a few weeks before Technip’s Deep Star was scheduled to receive them on their deck for deployment in Trinidad. We offloaded the four reels (345mt, 345 mt, 336 mt, 290mt weights) loaded with flexibles and another 100 project packages and crates from the SAIMAAGRACHT and put them in temporary storage. The reels were loaded onto the Deep Star mid-October. The project was completed successfully using Core’s heavy lift and dock storage capacity.


MWCC- Replacing Dunnage

Core manufactured new concrete mats to be placed under four reels in the MWCC dock storage area. When the matts were prepared, Core used the H/L crane to walk the four 200 ton reels with flexibles to temporary storage. We removed the old dunnage and replaced it with new concrete ones. Core then lifted and walked the four reels back into the long term storage area and placed them on the new concrete mats.


SS7- Island Victory

Island Victory arrived to Core Industries in September 2020 to load out the mooring chains for the Mad Dog project. This vessel is specialized in receiving chain into its winch system and storing it below deck for deployment in the Gulf at the project site. Core loaded long, heavy (bundles of 127,000 lbs.) shots of chain onto the deck and they were then stowed below deck.


MWCC: Receiving two subsea cooling modules

Marine Well Containment Company (MWCC) is responsible for the maintenance, deployment and operation of the Containment System during a response to a deepwater well control incident in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. MWCC utilizes the facilities and services of Technip USA and Core Industries to store, maintain and test the equipment in Mobile, Alabama.

In September 2020 MWCC expanded their well containment system with the addition of two subsea cooling modules that will rest on the seabed in the petroleum flow line. This will provide cooling for some of the extremely high temperatures that some of the newest wells are seeing in the production lines. This equipment was manufactured in Texas and brought to their Surf location at Core for storage and maintenance. It was Cores responsibility to safely offload the two cooling modules (170,000 lbs. each) and their Mud matts (110,000 lbs. each), then integrate these pairs into storage positions in the MWCC Dock Area at Core Industries.
