Abstract

This study introduces the construction practice for the LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) unloading arm installation at Kochi Vypeen Island in south India. The difficulties faced and solutions implemented provide a very practical reference to any similar maritime projects. The first attempt to install unloading arms was suspended for 5.5 months due to unsteady sea condition when southwest monsoon swept the project site. Through a multi-companies teamwork building and brainstorming, an effective solution using a spudded tidal barge was proposed and implemented resulting in the installation being successfully completed.
