Evopod completes trials

The Evopod is a device for generating electricity from coastal tidal streams, tidal estuaries, rivers and ocean currents and rather than being attached to the seabed it offers a unique floating solution for tidal energy generation. The designers, Oceanflow claim that this type of solution offers a much cheaper and easier form of tidal generator because intervention in the event of failure is much easier with a floating solution. Now the Evopod development has moved further ahead with the completion of 6 months of winter deployment reportedly without problems. For floating units Oceanflow claims that it is important that the floating platform supporting the turbines does not pick up motions from passing waves and that the turbine can be kept away from wave action in average sea conditions. ...

Goliat FPSO Unit Arrives Offshore Norway

The FPSO unit for the Goliat oil field in the Barents Sea will complete the final stage of its journey from South Korea to Norway by the end of this week. The Dockwise Vanguard heavylift vessel, which is transporting the unit, is currently off the coast of mid-Norway and will arrive at Hammerfest in northern Norway on April 17. The world’s largest heavylift vessel set sail from Ulsan in South Korea on Feb. 14 on its 15,700 nautical mile journey. Vetle Dalan, subsea technology manager for operator Eni Norge, explained the next steps in the field development process to delegates at the Subsea Valley Conference in Oslo on April 15. “There will be some activities prior to float-off of the FPSO.

Hyundai Heavy Industries to Add 10,000 ton Heavy Lift Vessel to Its Offshore Facility- Building Infrastructure Legion

Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. (HHI), the world’s biggest shipbuilder and a leading offshore facilities contractor, today announced its shipbuilding affiliate, Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries, completed a 10,000 ton heavy lift vessel (HVL), Hyundai-10000, at its shipyard in Yeongam, South Korea. After a series of final tests, the HVL will join HHI’s existing offshore facility-building infrastructure in Ulsan in March and begin operation from April this year. The vessel equipped with 8 double truss jib cranes measures 182 m in length, 70 m in width and 11 m in depth. With the addition of HLV, HHI’s maximum lifting capacity per module will increase more than six-fold from 1,200 tons to 8,000 tons. With the new HLV, HHI can install bigger modularized blocks built on-ground onto offshore fa...
