The superlarge crane vessel Sleipnir has set a new record for the largest single lift jacket removal, after successfully lifting the 8,100 tonne jacket for the Jotun-B platform in the Norwegian North Sea, last week.
Denmark’s Lindø port of Odense recently placed an order for a mobile harbor crane with a lifting capacity of up to 308 tonnes and a lifting height of 96.7 meters above quay, as part of its efforts to cope with the huge offshore wind turbines of tomorrow.
The video, published by the Dutch lifting and drilling company Huisman Equipment, depicts the installation of two 10,000-tonne tub mounted cranes on Heerema’s Sleipnir semi-submersible crane vessel, in Singapore. The two cranes are the world’s largest tub cranes with a radius of 48 meters.
On 25 July 2018, PSA Norway carried out an audit of the follow-up of materials handling, cranes and lifting on ‘Martin Linge B’, the FSO unit that was recently installed in North Sea. The audit detected non-conformities in procedures for cranes and lifting operations, completion of cranes and training.
