These structures are very important for the Tyra project, since the jacket will be transported on them to the Tyra natural gas field in the North. The jacket has a weight of 7,000 tons
Yesterday the four sets of load-out beams manufactured by Tecade for the Tyra TEG jacket were loaded in the Port of Seville. They were manufactured at Los Molares workshop and assembled at Tecade facilities in the Port of Seville. The structures will be transported to the Dragados Offshore company in Puerto Real (Cadiz).
These structures are very critical for the Tyra project, since the jacket will be built on them, which has a weight of 7,000 tons. Each structure is formed by two parallel beams and one in cross with tubular core on which a mechanized pedestal is installed and the jacket leg will rest. The weight of each complete structure is more than 200 tons with dimensions 17.3 x 12.6 x 3.6 m.
The jacket stands on these beams, which act as an assembly bench and load structure on a barge. Once loaded on it, the beams serve as cargo delivery elements for their journey to their final destination in the North Sea.
The Tyra project is developed through the company Dragados Offshore, S.A. Tecade, has been responsible for the transport of materials, cutting, assembly, welding and transport by sea of the structures; All this following the strictest control and quality assurance procedures.
For the loading and transport of the pieces to Puerto Real, a “Heavy Lift” ship with large capacity cranes has been used. This vessel is one of the largest capacity that has operated in the Port of Seville. Its length is 157m, its sleeve 26m and its maximum weight is 18,000 tons.
