Noble Denton Brazil was awarded the EPC contract by Techint to perform all the engineering, procurement, management and execution of the load-out of the PRA-1 jacket from the erection site to the end of the quay and then onto a barge.
With a small team of dedicated professionals and in partnership with Fagioli PSC who supplied and operated the four strand jacks of 450 tonnes capacity each fitted with a total of 108 strand wire ropes, this challenging project has been completed with great success.
The PRA-1 is the first jacket built in Brazil since the late-1980s for water depths over 100m. It was fabricated by Techint at their yard in the state of Parana with a total loadout weight of 6,200 tonnes. The distance traveled from its fabrication location to the final position on the barge was 456 meters--possibly a world record.
