Hyundai Heavy Loads World’s Largest Offshore Platform
Hyundai Heavy Industries, the world's biggest shipbuilder and a leading offshore facilities manufacturer, loaded the world's largest offshore platform onto a barge on December 4.
Hyundai Heavy jacked up the 23,600 ton topside of the North Rankin 2 Project ordered by Woodside Energy 26.5 m and installed it on the provisional transport frame.
The platform, measuring 100 m in length, 50 m in width and 80 m in height, will be used to increase pressure for the existing platform already producing natural gas from 2012.
The NR2 platform is scheduled to sail out in mid-December after finishing touches, and will be installed on an offshore jacket in North Rankin & Perseus fields of Australia.
