This project involved the refit and conversion of an existing VLCC tanker vessel to accommodate deck mounted crude oil receiving and processing equipment. A new process control room was provided in the existing accommodation block and crew amenities and cabins were substantially upgraded. All asbestos board deckhead linings were replaced with non-asbestos materials using approved containment and monitoring procedures.
Jackson Lane Pty Ltd was responsible for preparation of detail design for modifications to crew accommodation spaces to suit revised crewing arrangements and new process control facilities. The work involved modifications to galley, mess rooms and pantries as well as public recreation rooms and stores. A crude oil sampling laboratory was also provided. Construction supervision work was undertaken at the IHI Shipyard in Yokahama, Japan.
