In April this year, the POSH Arcadia will be supporting ENI’s Jangkrik Floating Production Unit (FPU) located off Balikpapan, Indonesia during the hook-up and commissioning phase. The column stabilised offshore accomodation vessel was chosen over a conventional spread moored accommodation barge as she can be operated in DP3 mode which will allow her to stay continuously connected to the FPU by a Passive Heave Gangway. This will significantly
reduce the frequencies of crew transfers by boat. The high-end accommodation with top of the range facilities such as an equipped gym, cinema, internet room and lounges will be well received by the personnel and clients from Saipem Triparta Chiyoda Joint Operations working offshore. The POSH Arcadia will be supporting the Jangkrik FPU till end of June, before she embarks on her next project with Technip FMC to support the Shell Prelude FLNG offshore Australia. POSH Terasea will be towing the FLNG from Korea with three units of 200TBP tugs and another 200T escorting tug. Upon arrival in the Prelude field, a fifth 200TBP tug from POSH Terasea together with POSH Arcadia will be joining the convoy to support the hook up and commissioning works.
