In August 2015, Theodore Industrial Port was awarded the opportunity to help Technip with their Amethyst Project. This project consisted of receiving the BBC Palessa and supervising the unloading of four umbilical reels using a heavy-lift crane. The reels and coinciding drive system were then loaded onto a barge and sent across the industrial canal to Technip’s facility. The material on the spools was then transpooled onto Technip’s vessel the Deep Blue. Once the spooling process was complete, the barge was demobilized and the reels were then loaded back out.
