Replacing Cranes at Offshore Substations: A Comprehensive Approach

Undertaking the task of replacing cranes at offshore substations demands a meticulous and comprehensive approach that encompasses various critical stages. At Conbit, we prioritize a full-service scope to ensure seamless execution and optimal performance throughout the project lifecycle. From the initial phase of sourcing a new crane to the meticulous removal of the old equipment, our team meticulously plans and coordinates each step.

Modular lifting systems can be used to lift deck cranes from an offshore substation onto a supply vessel. This approach avoids the use of crane vessels and jack up barges.t
Replacing of deck cranes does not require crane vessels

This includes adapting the pedestal, rigorous engineering assessments, obtaining necessary third-party approvals, and adhering to meticulous MWS (Management of Work System) protocols. Upon the completion of preparatory phases, the installation of the new crane takes center stage, followed by rigorous commissioning and testing procedures to guarantee operational excellence and safety compliance. Our holistic approach ensures that every aspect of the crane replacement project is carefully structured and executed, ultimately contributing to enhanced efficiency and reliability in offshore operations.

Lifting Services Below Substation Topsides: Enhancing Subsea Infrastructure

Conbit specializes in providing cutting-edge lifting systems tailored to the installation of J-tubes and export cables beneath offshore substations. Our collaborative approach extends to working closely with diving companies, ensuring seamless integration and execution of subsea operations. Whether it involves the modification of existing substations or the replacement of crucial components underneath, Conbit offers a turnkey solution that addresses the unique challenges inherent in substation infrastructure.

With a keen focus on precision engineering and meticulous project management, we strive to optimize efficiency and minimize downtime, thereby bolstering the integrity and functionality of subsea infrastructure in offshore environments.
