The jacket fabricated in GSP Shipyard for the second phase of the Akcakoca field development was lifted and loaded out onboard GSP Bigfoot 2. The steel construction, 101 meters long, was fabricated under an offshore construction contract for the Turkish Petroleum (TPAO).

The last preparative are carried out onboard the semisubmersible barge, as the technical vessel prepares to head out towards the installation location, in Western Black Sea.
