ARCO Floating Liquefied Petroleum Gas Terminal

Java Sea, Indonesia

By conceiving and designing an innovative floating concrete liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) terminal, BergerABAM's offshore specialists were able to save the client millions of dollars in capital costs while providing a facility that is much more serviceable and cost-effective than traditional bulk liquid terminal construction. Although floating terminals are not an uncommon solution to LPG production in remote areas, the unique prestressed marine concrete construction developed by the experts at BergerABAM means that the ARCO facility can remain on station in continuous operation to produce continuous cash flow over the life of the project. The periodic removal from service for dry docking for hull maintenance, typical for traditional steel hulls, is not required.
