The supply chain for onshore chemical and petrochemical plants is well developed. Every industrial plant of significant size has attracted solid contractors to perform maintenance and modifications. When the projects become too big or too complex, operators of those plants reach out to large EPC firms.
Conbit’s added value is rare and can impact the outcome of the most challenging projects. When there is no regular crane available, or the operational conditions are tough, the Conbit engineers' advice makes the difference.
Operators of chemical and petrochemical plants contact Conbit when they need lifting capacity outside the reach of cranes. They also reach out if they have a special project involving one of their flares.
Conbit provides modular lifting systems when no crane can reach a flare tip, e.g., above 120 meters.
Conbit offers structural engineering expertise to re-assess the tension values when a guy wired flares are not well documented. Conbit’s guy wire integrity program includes maintenance, inspection and testing, and replacement services.
For retractable flare systems, Conbit can be your one-stop shop. We make sure the accessories are available and fit for purpose at the start of the project. We can operate the retractable system and arrange the logistics.
FPAL Verified. We are audited by FPAL on quality, safety, health, environment, competencies and training in the oil and gas industry.
An EKH certificate shows that we inspects, repair and maintain lifting and rigging equipment according to EKH procedures, and guidelines. It is similar to LEEA.
We are ISO 9001 certified. ISO is a quality standard that shows our commitment to continuously improving our organization.
ISO 14001 shows that we fulfil the requirements for an environmental management system developed by the International Organization for Standardization.
We are ISO 45001 certified. It is the new ISO standard that is being developed for occupational safety and health.
Conbit uses its structural engineering services to support its turnkey projects. Occasionally, we support our clients with life time extension analysis and structural design services. Also within the decommissioning industry, we support with structural engineering services as part of our complete heavy lift preparation scope.
Conbit originated as an engineering company, which makes us well-positioned to design your bespoke lifting equipment.
However, we are specialized in a few specific pieces of lifting equipment. Those specific sets of equipment can be supplied to our clients.
Conbit has supplied flare tip handling systems, handling equipment to be used in cleanrooms, and general rigging and lifting equipment, such as winches, chainhoists, etc.
Conbit has its main warehouse at their headquarter facility in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Conbit is operating warehouse facilities on all continents, except in South America.
Strategic equipment is located close to our clients near the Gulf of Mexico, Western Africa, Middle East, Malaysia, Thailand and in Australia.
For the tranpsortation of the equipment from the main warehouse to all over the world we use both sea and air freight depending on the project.
Conbit has been using the IRATA guidelines to perform rope access for many years. We recently made the decision to get registered and certified as an IRATA certified company. We expect this process to be finalized before the end of 2022.
Conbit can perform EKH certification of lifting equipment. Typically, we use this capability to test and certify our own equipment to minimize project leadtime.
When you are operating within the Oil and Gas, petrochemical or wind industry we are probably not your ideal certification company.
For clients in the high tech industry, this is different. For high Tech clients, we can perform EKH certification.
Conbit owns many sheaves, shackles and winches that can be used to operate retractable flare systems. This equipment is part of our rental fleet.
Owners of retractable flares are facing difficulties to keep the rigging accessories in proper condition, because it is not used frequently.
With the Conbit rental equipment, this challenge is mitigated. The Conbit equipment is always in good condition and carries the right certificates.
There are many challenges when maintaining guy wired flares. Conbit’s engineers and fieldteams understand these challenges.
They work together to maximize the lifetime and integrity of guy wire supported flares all over the world. Conbit’s guy wire integrity program offers a complete range of service, including condition monitoring of guy wired supported flares.
Conbit offers installation services including equipment design, lifting and handling, and consultation on constructability and maintainability of equipment.
Preventive maintenance are necessary for better production forecasting. Conbit provides support for predictive and corrective maintenance projects.
Conbit designs its modifications methodologies to prevent hot works, subsea works, and marine spreads to keep the operational impact to a minimum.
Conbit offers a full package combining its lifting expertise with cutting, welding, and other mechanical competencies in offshore decommissioning projects.
