Transportation & Installation of Offshore Rig-Legs

Dimensions – 240 TONS, 72m Length X 2.5m
Diameter

THE CHALLENGE – Four offshore leg structures had
to be transported from their fabrication yard within a
short time period to the port where they had to be
installed on to the rig. The main challenge here was
to transport the abnormally long rig legs through
narrow bending roads full of unavoidable obstacles.

OUR SOLUTION – We used 2 file wide 18 axle
Goldhofer conventional multi-axle trailers configured
with turntable bolster attachments for the
transportation. Upon reaching the destination the
legs were top and tailed upright using our Liebherr
600 Ton Crawler as the main crane & our 250 Ton
Kobelco Crawler as a tailing crane completing a
successful transport and installation within record
times.
