Conbit is committed to bringing the costs down. Our clients save costs by minimizing the requirements of the most expensive vessels. How does Conbit do that?
The costs for marine spread often determine operating an offshore wind farm cost. One of the governing factors is the required lifting capacity. Conbit finds methods that eliminate large cranes with flexible lifting systems and different approaches to lifting challenges. Decreasing the lifting capacity required on a vessel increases the available vessels and drives the day rates down.
Together with our clients, we try to optimize the project duration by limiting the number of offshore days required to perform a maintenance or modification activity.
A dedicated team designs and constructs lifting and handling tools specifically for the offshore wind industry. The design team has all competencies in-house to design your project specific or bespoke lifting and handling equipment. The team starts the design process and covers all phases from construction to commissioning.
If you need help replacing boat landings, J-tube, or a component over the side, we at Conbit are here to help. We also provide corrective maintenance services for turbines when you need to replace parts.
Contact us now. Let’s talk about how our services can benefit you.
Since 2018, Conbit has been developing a lifting system to replace major components within floating wind turbines. This modular lifting system is installed at the WTG (Wind Turbine Generator) when a heavy component needs replacement.
Reach out to Conbit to find out more about this.
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.
No, we do not own them ourselves, but we have worked in simops (simultaneous operations) with all kinds of vessels over the course of years.
We know what is asked of both of us to make the job run as smooth as possible.
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 has been working in all parts of the world, mainly on oil and gas platforms. Within the offshore wind industry, we have mainly been working in Europe until today, but can easily support clients all over the world.
The Conbit technicians have the required certificates to work on offshore wind turbines and offshore substations.
Conbit’s technicians typically do not have specific turbine certificates, however, we can integrate contractors into our project teams.
Yes, Conbit offers lifting solutions for the offshore wind industry.
Conbit offers major component replacement solutions for both fixed and floating wind turbines. Conbit also offers lifting solutions on and inside substations.
An example of Conbit work at a substation can be found here: Cable Riser Protection frame
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.
