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.
