Technip, a world leader in project management, engineering and construction for the energy industry, announced that it had successfully installed the HRD process platform for Indian gas major ONGC Ltd, using its proprietary Unideck integrated topside float-over installation system for the first time in Indian waters.

The unique feature of this installation method is that it performs the integrated production deck (topsides) installation in a single operation, thus saving installation time and lowering risks compared to some other traditional methodologies of multiple lifts of smaller modules.

The topsides were designed by Technip in India for the float-over installation, using Technip’s proprietary Unideck integrated deck installation system, with the support of Technip in France, which ensured the flawless execution of the float over operations.

Samik Mukherjee, Country Head and Managing Director, Technip in India, said: “It is a moment of pride for Technip in India to witness the installation of approximately 8,200 metric tonne integrated production deck onto the Heera field for our client ONGC. The HRD platform will help in increasing field exploration and development activities, thus improving domestic hydrocarbon production.”
