ALP wins Angola towing contract
Interoil/Sapiem has contracted ALP Maritime Services (ALP) to perform tow assistance and heading control services for the Kaombo FPSO project in Angola.
Two of ALP’s 300-tonne bollard pull Future-class vessels will provide tow-assist operations from the Sembawang Shipyard in Singapore to Angola.
Upon arrival they will be joined by three additional ALP vessels, which are required to keep the FPSO Kaombo Norte accurately stationed during connection to its mooring lines.
On completion of the mooring operation, two of the vessels will continue to support the riser pull-in operation.
