EPG has delivered structures of Single Anchor Loading System with Yoke with total weight of 1200 tons. Biggest element was triangular Yoke structure with weight 700 tons, than three pile anchors with 100 tons each and turret table.
It was first structure of such design and therefore pretty challenging also because it was to be shipped directly for installation by heavy lift vessel.
Main challenges in scope was Inconel 625 cladding, heavy machining and welding of plates with 400 mm. Yoke structure was filled with 350 tons of magnetite.
System will be used to moor and load FLNG vessel Golar Hilli operating on gas field Kribi at the coast of Cameroon.
