There are always ways to realise lifting capacity on an offshore platform. Finding the best solution requires experience and skill, Conbit goes the extra mile to obtain the best result for its clients.
In this case, Conbit was contracted to provide the engineering for the lift a lay-down area (LDA) extension onto the north side of Total’s K6-P gas production platform. Total’s K6-P gas production platform is located in the Dutch K6 sector of the North Sea, approximately 100 km northwest of Den Helder.
Temporary lifting solution
Because the available deck crane could not be used for this lifting operation, Conbit was asked to provide a solution.
To enable lifting of the LDA extension, weighing 17.5 MT, temporary lifting devices were installed on the platform’s main deck. Conbit was responsible for the design and engineering of the lifting structure, including all the structural analyses that were required to ensure safety of the system.
