Hubert Palfinger Technologies offers tailor-made solutions to its customers in the offshore sector. From the servicing and maintenance of Jack-Up legs to the maintenance of the complete under-deck areas of both Jack-Up rigs and platforms, HPT has the solution for gaining easy, safe and fast access to nearly all these areas due to the modular design.
Under Platform Access
The UPA provides access to the bracings, underside helidecks and side shells of offshore fixed platforms and rigs (Jack-Ups and Semisubmersibles). Easily mounted and relocated on the side of the hull/maindeck, the extending inspection arm offers a range of 31 m to provide easy access to the complete underfloor and sides of the rig or platform, plus lower leg sections of Jack-Ups. Repair and inspection work can be performed offshore and during shipyard visits. Flexibility, safety and easy access are the key points of the UPA.
The Inspection Platform has been designed for inspection works on the legs of Jack-up rigs. The inspection work can be done quickly at any time and any place – even offshore. Once installed on one cord of the leg, the autonomously powered platform can climb and descend the legs with up to four persons – including material for servicing – on board. The quick installation and easy operation saves time and money.
The Rack Crane is a modular design and configurable to various leg designs. It can be further extended with access stages and folding platforms to provide increased access. Options for partial enclousures for flexible and weather protected work space are available. The very flexible and customized design creates the ideal conditions for a wide range of applications. Examples include inspections, steelwork, rack repairs, and coating. Increased efficiency compared to conventional methods e.g. on average 3-5 anodes per hour being changed, producing 60% higher efficiency.
Flexibility, safety and easy access are key benefits of the Aerial Platform (AP 14). It provides access to various areas around the platform or rig, utilizing a very versatile and manoeuvrable crane. The AP 14 can easily be mounted and relocated on multiple pedestal locations for maximum flexibility. Lightweight and compact in its storage position, it can be permanently mounted in key areas and uses minimal space and deck load.
