Worldwide heavy lifting and special transport specialist Sarens announces its cooperation in the Cheviot Octabouy project. At the Cosco Shipyard in Nantong (Qidong, China) a new drilling platform will be built. Sarens' expertise will be used to lift several modules for the construction of the top-side drilling platform with a total weight of 15.000t. The heaviest module will weigh 1.300t. The SGC-120 will be transported directly to China, after finishing a job in Arizona, USA.
On site the crane will be assembled and moved with SPMT's (Self-Propelled Modular Trailers) to her lifting position. "Thus the SGC-120 facilitates the total duration of the project as the crane will not obstruct the other on-site works," explains Technical Solution Manager Steven Sarens.
The assembly of the crane will start in August 2012. The lifting is scheduled for October 2012 and will last several months.
