Conbit installs Shelter and Helideck Module offshore Libya
The Libyan joint venture of Total and NOC, Mabruk Oil Operations, awarded Conbit a several million contract for the installation of an emergency shelter and helideck on their BD-1 offshore platform. The actual installation will be performed with the special lifting techniques for which Conbit is famous.
Mabruk Oil Operations ordered a shelter and helideck from a Dutch manufacturer in 2012. The contract involved delivery Free on Board Rotterdam. From this point, Conbit was assigned to arrange transport to Libya and installation on the BD-1 platform, off the coast of Libya. The project was awarded in two parts. The engineering contract was awarded in April, while the transport and installation contract was awarded at the beginning of September 2013, just three weeks before the scheduled transport date.
