Boskalis on FSO Safer Oil Transfer Operation – Ndeavour Berths alonside – Video

Boskalis’ multipurpose vessel Ndeavor recently berthed alongside the FSO Safer, after which the colleagues of SMIT Salvage continued with the inspections of the deck machinery and the structural integrity of the hull.

Furthermore, inert gas generators were transferred from the Ndeavor onto the Safer. The level of oxygen and other flammable gases in each of the oil tank compartments must be reduced by pumping inert gas into the compartments before the tanks can be declared safe for the ship-to-ship transfer of the oil.

 

 

As part of the preparations, the inspection of the manifold on board the FSO has also commenced. In parallel to these activities, a mobile fixed staircase was built to facilitate easy and safe access between the Ndeavor and the Safer.

 

 

Overall, the first phase of the operation including these inspections and preparing the Safer for the ship-to-ship transfer of the oil are progressing well.
