Single/Double Type Lifting Beam for Module Installation in the FPSO P-79 Project

02, February, 2024 - 

HJTND signed a contract to develop the module installation Lifting Beam for Hanwha Ocean's FPSO P-79 project and delivered the Single Type Lifting Beam in November 2023. This time, we have completed the development of the Double Type Lifting Beam and delivered it to the client.

The development of the Lifting Beams for module installation in the FPSO P-79 project had to meet the client's vertical lifting requirements. This project necessitated a multi-faceted approach to accommodate the size and height of more than 20 modules.

herefore, our technical department designed the Spreader Beam with consideration for easy rigging, worker convenience, and safety. To achieve this, we developed two lifting options: Single Beam and Double Beam.

For the Single Beam, it is capable of being loaded with a 3,600-ton floating crane (F/C) and has a Safe Working Load (S.W.L) of 1,600 tons per beam, allowing for a maximum lifting capacity of 3,200 tons when using 2 beams. On the other hand, the Double Beam utilizes two 3,600-ton floating cranes (F/C) and has an S.W.L of 2,400 tons per beam, enabling a maximum lifting capacity of 4,800 tons when using the combination of two beams.

Hanwha Ocean's FPSO P-79 project, which includes the integration of the hull's topside structure and four additional modules, is constructed with modules weighing approximately 4,000 tons in four stages. These modules have dimensions of 25 meters in height, 22 meters in width, and 33 meters in length. HJTND has successfully developed Single and Dual Type Lifting Beams to ensure the successful construction of FPSO P-79, capable of storing a maximum of 1.8 million barrels per day and a total of 20 million barrels of oil. The FPSO 6064, built with HJTND's lifting equipment, is scheduled to embark on its maiden voyage in 2025 following sea trials.
