Offshore Crane Boom Tip Replacement

In order to minimise offshore time, Total E&P Netherlands entrusted Conbit to coordinate the complete installation of the new crane boom tip on the L7P platform. The tip of the crane boom was due for replacement to achieve the design capacity of the crane again. The new section was ready for shipment at the Total yard in Den Helder when Conbit started the project. Conbit would only consider the project completed after a successful load test of the crane with the new boom tip installed.

To achieve this goal, various activities were required. The project began with a site visit to become acquainted with the situation on the project side. On their return from the site visit, the engineers in the Conbit office drafted a method statement. This method statement described all activities required and included:

  • Load out and sea-fastening plan
  • Lift plans
  • Location of scaffolding requirements
  • Bolting schedule
  • Load test procedure

After the method statement was submitted, all project stakeholders gathered for a JSA meeting in which all hazards were identified and discussed.
