In 2017 Jumbo was awarded a contract by Geocean for the Moheshkhali Project, which is seeing a floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal developed off the shores of Moheshkhali Island in the Bay of Bengal, Bangladesh. It will be the country's first LNG import terminal and is expected to help secure the future provision of energy for Bangladesh.

The Moheshkhali floating LNG import terminal will also include a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU), a subsea buoy system and a subsea pipeline, which will connect the terminal to an onshore pipeline system.

Jumbo was contracted to transport and install the mooring system for the FSRU. This involved installing eight suction piles/anchors, one pipeline end terminal (PLEM) and one pad as well as scouring protection.

Mobilization began in mid-December 2017 with the installation execution going ahead in early January 2018. Works on the project have now been successfully completed by the Jumbo offshore team and all the experienced crew aboard the Jumbo Javelin.

Tom Rijnders, Project Manager Jumbo, said, “Conditions on this project were at times challenging due to strong currents and poor visibility, however, the crew on board managed to perform outstandingly with a lot of ingenuity and persistence to complete the project within specifications.”
