Innovation in Offshore Engineering
WINNER Dockwise Shipping B.V. | Bay of Bengal, Myanmar
SHWE Transportation and Installation
The USD 1.5 billion SH WE gas field development project at the Bay of Bengal, Myanmar, required transportation and installation of a massive
22,000-metric-ton jacket and 30,000-metric-ton topsides with deck support frame. The contract was awarded to Dockwise by EPCI contractor
Hyundai Heavy Industries. Dockwise performed the operation and engineering for the jacket transportation, jacket launch, topsides transportation,
and topsides float-over.
Dockwise spread the work among its three design centers in the Netherlands, United States, and China. An innovative bottle-shaped barge design
to transport these massive structures was produced using MOSES and SACS. Data access, accuracy, traceability, and workflow were addressed
by managing files in Project Wise. These solutions saved about 5,000 of the 30,000 man-hours estimated for execution and reduced the four
operational days offshore by half.
