In late 2010 Modulift was awarded a contract to design, manufacture and supply two 550t WLL capacity Spreader Beams for use offshore on the West coast of Africa.
The Spreader Beams were necessary for the Offshore Transportation and Installation (OT&I) of the Pre-Assembled Units (PAU I) on Floating Production, Storage, and Offloading vessels (FPSOs). The exact quality required design, manufacture and inspection in accordance with a comprehensive and approved plan together with independent design review by an International Classification Society against a stringent marine operations and relevant API / AISC design codes.
Due to the project being executed on Exxon’s busiest Rig, which was to continue operating throughout this project, these Spreaders were scrutinized at every stage to ensure the highest quality build to minimize any risk during operation. For Modulift to achieve a high level of success it required a dedicated team and the upmost focus to deliver quality products.
Companies supplying the Oil & Gas industry also regularly require Modulift’s expertise. One such customer is Atlas Copco the world’s leading provider of compressed air packages, who supply many Oil & Gas companies around the globe. One particular project in Australia “Pluto LNG” required Spreader Beams of the highest specification to export a 124.3t Skid for an instrument air compressor and dryer from their base in the UK to the Burrup Peninsula in Western Australia.
Modulift supplied a MOD 400/600 Spreader Beam and worked closely with the Gulf Haulage and Heavy Lift engineering team for a 400t asymmetric lift of an oil refinery boiller in Yanbu in Saudi Arabia on the red sea coast.
In addition Modulift supplied 4 Spreaders to Al Jaber for Exxon Mobil SPT project certified for use in Singapore and further Spreaders to be supplied later in the year for lifting pipe racks up to 270t
