The 18,000mt BorWin Gamma topside was safely installed by COSCO SHIPPING Specialized’s DP2 vessel M/V Xiang He Kou on 11 October 2018. This is the first topside to be installed in the North Sea by the Dynamic Positioning (DP) floatover method pioneered by COSCO SHIPPING Specialized. The transport and installation (T&I) contract was awarded by Petrofac in 2016.
Borwin Gamma is the fourth successful T&I contract to be executed in 2018 by COSCO SHIPPING Specialized and DNVGL. Two more DP floatover installations are scheduled to take place using the DP2 M/V TAI AN KOU in the Middle East by the end of this year. COSCO SHIPPING Specialized, with it’s wide ranging fleet of DP2 semi-submersible heavy lift vessels, remains the global leader in DP floatover installations.
