Neptune has been awarded a contract for the provision of 350 concrete mattresses by McDermott Australia Pty Ltd.
The mattresses, which will be utilized for flowlines walking mitigation on the Inpex-operated Ichthys LNG project, will be manufactured at Neptune’s yard in Batam.
The mattresses will be made utilizing heavy density concrete and will weigh approximately 60 tonne each in the air, the company explained.
Works started in April 2016 under an accelerated production schedule.
Neptune CEO, Robin King, said: “The award of this contract follows the successful completion of other related scopes of work for McDermott on the Ichthys project by our stabilization service line. Additionally, Neptune has also performed survey and ROV campaigns on this project in recent years and we are pleased to provide ongoing support to McDermott on this milestone development.”
