Our client Medco Energy Indonesia is engaging in a drilling campaign that requires a larger capacity crane to be installed onto the platform to complement the existing crane and allow for the installation of the coil tube drilling tower above the platform well slots.
Alatas sourced, overhauled, shipped and installed a Seatrax 7226S offshore crane with a SWL of 70T and a boom length of 100 feet that fully met the clients requirements. Alatas Engineering designed the special skid with hydraulic cylinder actuation that allows the rental crane to be positioned anywhere on the platform.
The skid has a conical pedestal for the crane kingpost that greatly reduces installation time if compared to conventional slew bearing cranes. Alatas carried out the skid structure design in house allowing for full customization of the jacking system and skid structure.
