Solution Provider For Complex ATEX‑Rated Access, Handling & Hoisting Equipment Challenges!
Owing to their long experience of delivering specialist product designs & technical procurement packages to a wide-ranging customer base across multiple energy industries Safelift Offshore are at the forefront of ATEX-rated Handling & Hoisting equipment supply.
Through effective discussion & interaction with the customer’s personnel, exact compliance requirements are defined & recorded.
A competitive offer can then be made for the supply of a suitably converted product or, indeed, a completely new design where that’s made necessary by the precise nature of the application. Timescales to suit the customer’s project delivery schedule can then be agreed.
“We see Safelift Offshore’s deep knowledge base in terms of providing ATEX-compliant Handling & Hoisting equipment for access, handling, hoisting or towing uses as our customer’s benefit, particularly, in terms of adherence to delivery schedules, cost effectiveness & documentation pack hand-over,” remarks Hugh Ramsay, Group Sales Manager.
“Constructive dialogue with the customer’s team and a proven willingness to complement their own efforts to achieve the best outcome in terms of the cost, performance, safety & versatility of the ATEX-rated equipment they require for a particular application or work scope is our key differentiator,” he adds.
A recent Case Study demonstrates the company’s ability to routinely deliver these sorts of product solutions.
Davit Crane : New-Build FPSO
Challenge: The customer required a solution to enable Pigs to be handled & lifted within the mooring turret complex on a new-build FPSO project. The equipment design had to be explosion proof for use in an ATEX Zone 1 hazardous area and be in full compliance with NORSOK R-002 & their own strict project specification.
Solution: Design and supply a pedestal mounted fixed Davit Crane incorporating a manually activated hydraulic hand pump enabling the jib to be extended or retracted and moved up or down; provision to swivel 360°; special user benefits included a steel overlapping weather cover protecting the bearings against water ingress, a Plaswood hook buffer preventing steel on steel contact when winching & removable handles to let the operator achieve sufficient torque to rotate the crane under load.
