On behalf of Santos, ONA were contracted to design and support installation of navigation spars in a marine terminal field to assist navigation and maneuvering of tankers for offtake operations.
ONA working in accordance with company and engineering best practice standards, designed the spar buoys to assist pilot navigation of offtake tankers in the field. The spars were designed with Sealite lanterns and day shapes. Each spar is normally anchored with a 20 ton ONA clump weight and occasionally take hard knocks from passing vessels and include watertight compartments.
Outcome & Benefits
Through our in-house design and engineering expertise we were able to quickly develop a solution working with all relevant parties collaboratively to develop a fit for purpose and cost effective solution. Working closely with the manufacturer Weldtech we were able to ensure the delivery of 3 high quality spar buoys.
