Total E&P Nederland BV requested Conbit provide its lifting expertise to replace the helideck on the F15-A platform. The F15-A platform is a conventional manned platform located in the Dutch sector of the North Sea.
The tasks were completed during a shutdown. The Seafox 2 was present throughout the project to provide the necessary accommodation and lifting capacity.
A helideck replacement in an offshore environment is always challenging. External conditions such as wind and sea need to be taken into account.
Conbit was involved in every step of the project. During the preparation phase, the engineers prepared all the lifting plans, detailed drawings, and calculations of the lifting frames. They also assisted load-out at the manufacturer and coordination onboard the platform and supply vessel.
Conbit team used the following equipment to execute the project:
The lifting activities at the F15-A platform have been carried out with the Seafox 2 main crane. But because it was unable to reach every location, they used the F15-A platform crane to perform a dual lift.
The Conbit team was present to prepare the units for lifting and coordinate the actual lift. Such a dual lift operation requires good preparation, solid engineering, and a competent crew to carry out the job on-site safely and efficiently.
Combining profound engineering (structural and mechanical) and practical lifting expertise is the main benefit of having Conbit as a turnkey lifting service provider.
