Following its successful installation and commissioning at the Jurong Shipyard in Singapore, two EHC 100/4000 boom hoist cranes are handed over to Seadrill for the West Rigel semi-submersible.
Specializing in custom made and fit-for-purpose hoisting and lifting equipment, Kenz Cranes designed and built the two cranes in the Netherlands according to the highest Norwegian standards DNV 2.22/Norsok R002 and EN13852-1. As Kenz Cranes is one of the few suppliers able to deliver according to these standards, the company is chosen as manufacturer of the cranes which will be operational on the Norwegian continental shelf.
The two West Rigel Kenz cranes have been assembled at Jurong Shipyard where they have been successfully installed and load tested under supervision of DNV on the West Rigel drilling rig. The Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) subsequently released the cranes for use.
