Mammoet Weighs and Skids 10,200t Topside for Seatrium Singapore

The Mammoet team’s expertise was put to the test as they successfully completed the weighing and skidding loadout of 10,200t topside module. Their customer, Seatrium Singapore, formerly Sembcorp Singapore, entrusted Mammoet with this critical task for Shell’s Whale Field Floating Production Unit, which will be located in the Gulf of Mexico.

The FPU, comprising the topside module placed onto a four-column semi-submersible floating hull, will weigh a staggering 25,000t in total!

Mammoet’s skidding equipment used for the loadout consisted of:

  • 24 x 650t skid shoes,
  • 12 push-pull units,
  • 4 x 135m skid tracks,
  • 12 link and transport beams.

This impressive setup enabled Mammoet to manoeuvre and load out the topside faultlessly, setting the stage for an incredible offshore project.
