In accordance with the client’s specifications, Conbit prepared the structural design of the flare-tip handling system, which featured a retractable davit as the main lifting equipment. A retractable davit system enables the operators to replace the flare tip efficiently and quite rapidly.
This project required a fully engineered design that involved davit lift technology combining safe working procedures, low risks and effective job completion. After the replacement the davit is permanently stowed below the flare-tip service platform. It provides a cost-effective method for flare-tip servicing, repair and replacement in the future.
The davit can be handled manually, eliminating the need for heavy motorised equipment or cranes.
PREPARATION & PROCUREMENT
Conbit devised extensive and detailed procedures for flare-tip handling and equipment installation.
In addition to the structural design and procedures, and according to the client’s specifications, Conbit also delivered lifting materials and equipment that were required for the lifting procedure, such as the winch. A load test was performed In Conbit’s warehouse to test the lifting system.
