BigLift Shipping move big cargo across the world

BigLift Shipping’s heavy transport vessels CY Interocean I and CY Interocean II have recently been busy transporting a jacket and topside from Italy to Argentina.

The two vessels moved the project cargo from Rosetti Marino’s yard to Argentina in December 2023 and January 2024. The vessels were picked for the job for their strength and large decks measuring 120 by 40 metres.

After Rosetti Marino had completed construction of the 1537mt jacket in December 2023, it was loaded onto the CY Interocean I to be installed in a water depth of approximately 71m.

The jacket includes the associated infrastructure such as piles, umbilicals, anodes, and pre-installed risers, pipes and facilities for future subsea wells.

In addition to their strong decks, the two heavy transport vessels are able to operate in shallow waters making them the perfect choice for this undertaking.

As a result, CY Interocean I became the first deck carrier ever to berth at the Rosetti Marino Piomboni shipyard. For the second voyage, the 1385 mt topside was loaded onto the CY Interocean II in January 2024.

The topside is a five-level structure covering an area of 2500 sq m and includes a helipad, an upper deck, a main deck containing the wellheads and the instrument room, and a lower deck.

The jacket and the topside are designed for the Fenix wellhead, located 60 kilometres off the coast of Tierra del Fuego in southern Argentina. The jacket and four piles for the 4800 mt platform were installed in early January, followed by the lifting and placement of the 1500 mt topside in mid-February.
