Creating lifting capacity outside the reach of the deck crane, without requiring a designated lifting vessel, is a challenge Conbit loves to take on. Conbit was awarded a contract for lifting two offshore accommodation units on the K6-P platform, located in the Dutch North Sea.

The project included the following main activities:

  • Engineering and method statement
  • Inspection
  • Provide Lifting equipment
  • Provide Rigging and Rope Access Crew
  • Coordinate 3th party activities
  • Provide supply vessel support crew

By the use of a temporary lifting system the accommodation unit was lifted into position. The weight of the new living quarters is 44 MT and its final position is below the helideck. The deck crane was not able to provide the lifting capacity and is not able to lift below the helideck. Other lifting devices, such as crane vessels, faced the same problem of not be capable of lifting below the helideck. This helped to convince all parties involved of the lifting solution provided by Conbit.
