As part of the 5-year Special Periodic Survey (SPS) for a jack-up rig, its rig owners approached ENERPRO to address concerns about current bunkering loading bay platforms on both the port and starboard (STBD) sides of the asset.
ENERPRO’s engineers conducted a site visit, identifying opportunities to enhance safety and functionality by designing new platforms. The redesigned platforms would ease access for the STBD crane and prevent hoses from kinking while in their resting position.
The existing bunkering loading bay platforms were not optimised for the intended purpose, posing safety risks and operational inefficiencies. The rig owners sought a solution that would enhance accessibility and mitigate the potential for hose kinking.
ENERPRO's experienced onsite design and engineering team took charge of the project. Following a comprehensive survey, the team developed General Arrangement (GA) drawings for customer consultation. Upon approval, ENERPRO personnel fabricated and painted the new platforms at its Port of Dundee facility, ensuring precision and quality. Finally, ENERPRO installed the platforms on the rig.
