For commissioning and training of our complete mooring system for the new built LNG Terminal de Regaseificação de São Paulo (TRSP), our engineers went to the city of Santos, São Paulo in Brazil. The terminal will accommodate the floating vessel “Höegh Giant”.
The mooring project for Equinor Kårstø terminal in Norway has been completed in our factory and on its way to Norway. The Kårstø processing plant, located in the north of Stavanger, is the largest of its kind in Europe. The plant plays a key role in the transport and processing of gas and condensate from major sites of the northern parts of the North Sea.
In 2011, James Fischer Strainstall supplied a complete mooring system to Brunei LNG consisting among others of multiple Quick Release Mooring Hooks and a Berthing Aid System. As part of our take over agreement with Strainstall, which enables Straatman to provide OEM spares to all Strainstalls historical Quick Release Hook projects as well as providing system upgrades and on-site support and servicing, our colleague Gertjan executed a site inspection at Brunei LNG last week.
Within a challenging lead time we produced 2 pcs. of inner balls for the male part of a bow coupling ø1000-15°-24/30 Bar. These parts are executed with wear resistant cones aiming to decrease wear and tear as long as possible. All the welds are performed with special hard facing top welds. Complete design, construction, welding and machining is executed in our factory in Zwijndrecht, The Netherlands.
Last week we finalized another interesting offshore mooring project, for equipment to be installed on an Offshore Wind Farm located at the East Coast of the USA . Our mooring equipment will enable to moor the feeder barge safely alongside the Offshore Installation Vessel.
Mooring dolphins at Eemshaven in Groningen ready for mooring of Les Alizés! Located in the most northern part of the Netherlands, these new mooring dolphins at Eemshaven are built to be able to moor Les Alizés, a new floating offshore installation vessel of Jan de Nul for offshore renewables.
Several interesting, challenging and smart-looking projects are reaching their final stage or are ready for shipment to various destinations all over de world: Various Quick release Mooring Hooks, Smart Bollards and Parts of bow couplings.
Back to the place where it all began: After the successful trial of one Smart Bollard along the quay of Hutchison Ports ECT (Europe Container Terminals) Rotterdam in the Port of Rotterdam, we recently installed 6 pcs of 100T Smart Bollards at the same terminal enabling Port of Rotterdam to measure mooring forces on an entire vessel!
At Straatman we take our responsibility for a sustainable future both in our offices and factory and by the products we make and deliver. But this week we took green more literally as we are currently finalizing an interesting project for equipment to be installed on an Offshore Wind Farm.
