GT Morstroy expands its fleet with jack-up platform of Project RCP 250, Varzina
GT Morstroy JSC has acquired a jack-up platform of Project RCP 250 named Varzina. As the company told IAA PortNews, GT Morstroy has thus expanded its fleet and raised potential efficiency of operation involving its own resources.
When put into operation, the platform was deployed for reclamation of land intended for construction of sea terminals under the 5th and 6th turns of general cargo transshipment facilities at the seaport of Ust-Luga.
With a caterpillar crane of 130 tonnes in capacity installed on the platform, it can be involved in pile driving in the water area of the port.
The 24 m x 17 m platform can accommodate equipment and materials of up to 250 tonnes and operate at the depth of up to 28 meters. Specific feature of the platform is the ability to be disassembled into container-type parts and be moved by any type of transport.
The Vazina platform features enhanced stability allowing it to be used in challenging meteorological conditions, i.e. with strong winds and high waves.
It can equipped with various facilities: excavator – for dredging works; different drilling equipment – for construction and geological works; cranes – for laying communications and pipelines as well as for assembling of structures in the water area.
GT Morstroy JSC specializes in construction of diverse port facilities and hydraulic engineering structures. The company earlier acquired a jack-up platform Vayenga (Project RCP250) and a sea-going tugboat Vorobey (Stan tug 1605). These vessels will be deployed for construction of new marine transport infrastructure facilities.
