Coromandel Fertilizer PLEM unit replacement through GOL, July 2012 to Sept 2012
September 2012

GOL, having used FC Rija in 2007, selected FC Rija to mobilize to Ennore, TamilNadu for the PLEM unit replacement for Coromandel Fertilizer Ammonia unit. The tow was carried out in the monsoon without any problems. The entire diving team coordination was done from Rija deck and the old PLEM unit replaced with a new unit. The sea environment was an entirely new experience from the usual west coast weather. DGPS units on the Rija and on the AHTS Malaviya One made light of the position holding challenge onsite. The clients saw the discharging vessel, a refrigerated ammonia gas carrier, perform to their satisfaction at the end of the job.
