Conbit, the specialist in mechanical flare tip handling systems

Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) and Inpex awarded Conbit the contract to design and deliver a flare tip handling system. The project aimed to replace the flare tip without using a pedestal crane or helicopter.

Additional scope 

The Central Processing Facility (CPF) is equipped with a 140m high flare tower. The flare tip (weighed 3,550 kg) is located on the access platform, on top of the tower.

Besides developing a handling system that eliminates the use of a pedestal crane and helicopter, another requirement for the flare tip handling system was to be removable so that it could be lowered to the deck for storage. 

Aside from designing and delivering the flare tip handling kit, Conbit also performed an on-site dry run of the replacement before sailing away in South Korea's SHI yard.

The flare tip handling system

Conbit ensured the safety of the flare tip handling system. They also guaranteed that an efficient removal and installation is possible if a flare tip change is required.

Conbit provided a detailed design of the flare tip handling tool, including heavy lifting procedures and structural analysis. Conbit supplied the main lifting equipment for this project: a gantry structure with some adjustments, two winches, guidelines, and rigging equipment.

On-site rehearsal 

Conbit supplied the complete flare tip handling system and the crew to perform the on-site dry run. The project was done at the SHI yard before sailing away. Conbit simulated the full flare tip handling operation from beginning to end.

The goal of the dry run was to check for improvements in the procedure. During this time, the actual flare tip was used as a test load and was completed successfully.
