Dockwise Performs Timely Delivery Of Shell's Brutus

Dockwise Performs Timely Delivery Of Shell's Brutus On January 28, the motor vessel Mighty Servant 3 of heavy transport shipping specialist Dockwise, safely arrived at Corpus, Christi, Texas (after a seven-week voyage) carrying Shell's 14.500-ton Brutus TLP (Tension Leg Platform) hull from South Korea. Moving at a speed of 13 knots, the vessel arrived via the Cape of Good Hope. Dockwise was granted the contract by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering for the transportation of the TLP hull for Shell's Gulf of Mexico Brutus project. Measuring 266 x 164 ft. (81.2 x 50 m) with a breadth of 266 ft. (81.2 m), the TLP was loaded onboard Mighty Servant 3 by the float-on method at Daewoo.

The diagonal setting of the hull on the 131 ft. (40-m) wide deck of Mighty Servant increased the width of the transport to 368 ft. (112.1 m) — resulting in an overhang of 118 ft. (36 m) on each side of the ship.
