Crane Installation

Copyright © Hampco. All rights reserved.

Hampco was contracted to supply all engineering, DNV approvals and project supervision for the deepwater upgrade of an early-generation drillship.  Part of this scope was to upgrade crane capacity.  It was impractical to upgrade the existing cranes in the time frame but a new crane was found on the market for installation in addition to the existing units.  This required the design and integration of a new high-capacity pedestal and integration into the relatively small hull.
