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.
