Sarens Moves, Weighs, And Jacks 21000T CPP Topside Module In Malaysia
The Belgian multinational, Sarens, used the CS5000 at the Kasawari Gas Development project in Pasir Gudang, in the Malaysian state of Johor. Sarens was asked to move, weigh, and jack the CPP topside module for the client, Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Sdn Bhd (MMHE).
In terms of equipment, the crew used eight CS5000 Jacking Unit, 96 axle-lines SPMTs and 64 mix capacity Load cells. The CS5000 is an advanced jacking system used for lifting extremely heavy components, and has a capacity of 5000 tonnes per tower. Saren’s team had to make a new part for the system to customise it for lifting the CPP topside modules weighing 21000 tonnes.
The equipment was transported via road and sea, from Belgium, Egypt, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Malaysia within a timeframe of three months. The set-up was safely completed ahead of schedule.
The shifting of the module was carried out in two phases. First double 24 axles were used to shift two parts of the LSF weighing 1000T from the fabrication yard to the installation site. Next, LSF weighing 2000 tonnes to 2500 tonnes were driven by four sets of 24 axle-lines to slot- in under the CPP Topside module.
Ridzuan Jamiran, assistant project manager said: “The most challenging part of the project was the installation and positioning of the jack.” He continues, stating that: “We are extremely proud of this amazing job where we used eight sets of the CS5000 jacking system and a combination of SPMTs to jack the 21000T topside module. We are thankful to all the stakeholders involved with the project for successfully and safely completing the project.”
