THE POWER OF PREPARATION

Conbit prepared for the manoeuvre with a thorough engineering plan. The flare tip access platform had a sufficient amount of strong points to carry the loads of the lifting system and the flare tip. To assure all stakeholders involved, a load-test took place at the engineering phase at the Conbit warehouse, with the client witnessing it. After this, the primary lifting equipment was sent via air cargo.

CHALLENGES

Conbit faced the unexpected challenge of performing the offshore lift to a supply vessel with no dynamic positioning. This impacted the timing and created further challenges of keeping the vessel level and finding the critical moment for the touch-down. As a result, Conbit devised an action plan to minimise this impact. Furthermore, Conbit was required to mobilise the equipment in a very short timeframe, which tested the logistics team’s ability. With expert planning and shipping of equipment, Conbit could negotiate this challenge.

ADDITIONAL SCOPE

Conbit were also tasked with removing existing piping using their lightweight rigging equipment and changing out the elbow from underneath the flare-tip, weighing 350kg. By remaining flexible and adaptable, Conbit could easily take on this additional scope for the client.
