Total E&P Netherlands requested Conbit to provide its offshore lifting and installation expertise to lift and install a pre-assembled unit (PAU) on the F15-A platform. The pre-assembled unit – a water treatment and injection facility – was to be installed on the existing steel structure at the south side of the platform, between the main and cellar decks.
The F15-A platform is a conventional manned platform, located in the North Sea.
Total contracted Conbit to design and engineer the installation accessories and associated lifting procedures, and provided the lifting equipment and lifting supervision. Conbit’s extensive background in structural engineering and special lifting made it possible to execute the challenging load-out and offshore lift, safely and cost effectively.
