Tug Pen Pontoons

We carried out the fabrication and construction of the Tug Pen Pontoons as part of Woodside’s Pluto Project near Karratha. Works included the duplication of the existing Tug Pen facility at King Bay, Dampier.

Steel pontoons and struts were fabricated, treated and fitted out offshore in Vietnam. Upon completion, the pontoon structure was transported to Dampier via a heavy lift ship and installed on site by local subcontractors and a 400 tonne land based crane.

The onshore scope of works included the construction of concrete abutments within the tidal zone and the installation of electrical, fuel and hydraulic services.

This project was executed in accordance with Woodside’s offshore standards and specifications, a project first for us.
