Volga-Dnepr’s expertise helps SOME move Wellhead Control Panel(WCP) and Hydraulic Power Unite (HPU) to Singapore
May 2, 2015:-Volga Dnepr has successfully delivered a heavy weight Wellhead Control Panel (WCP) of 17 tonnes to Singapore on behalf of SOME, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sembcorp Marine which had a contractual obligation with Det norske for the procurement and construction of the Process, Drilling and Quarters Platform (pdQ) topside to be installed in the Ivar Aasen development in the North Sea.
Volga-Dnepr’s Engineering and Logistics Centre (ELC) conducted site surveys in Stavanger to determine safe stowage compliance of both units, which involved the manufacturing of additional restraining points. The ELC project team produced technical drawings, road transportation, crane services and customs formalities to provide a seamless movement of cargo from factory to aircraft. The entire operation was conducted under the vigilance of Pentagon’s representatives from London and Stavanger.
Gary Provins from Pentagon’s Head office in the UK who supervised the loading said the flight with Volga-Dnepr went according to plan. He stated: “Everything went perfectly in terms of all of the planning, co-ordination and operations in Stavanger, and in terms of all the build-up work required to get to that stage. It has certainly demonstrated to us what Volga-Dnepr can offer and we look forward to more cooperation in the future. The latest flight with Volga-Dnepr was the first whereby Pentagon outsourced ‘value added services’ to Volga’s Engineering & Logistics Centre.”
