Replacing crane no. 4 on the Gullfaks A platform looked to be a very costly project for Statoil. The alternative to using a mobile crane to replace the crane was to use heavy lift vessels, such as the Saipem 7000 for example, entailing huge costs for the project.

The crane that needed replacing was located beyond the reach of the other cranes on the platform, and there was little or no space on the deck for a mobile crane. In addition, the distance to the other cranes was so great that a crane with very high lifting capacity would be needed to replace the crane.

The solution was to install a 300-tonne crawler crane on a solid foundation on top of the beams where the drilling rig is normally located.

This project is one of the most challenging projects Nordic Crane has ever conducted and required close collaboration with the manufacturer Liebherr to be able to install the crane on a solid foundation, instead of on link belts, as is normally the case.
