Grillages and handling equipment for Jumbo’s Fairplayer
Challenge: Optimize deck outfitting for installation of torpedo piles offshore Brazil
Scope: Engineering, structural checks
Jumbo awarded KENC with multiple engineering assignments. The scope entailed engineering and FEM calculations to prepare Jumbo’s ‘Fairplayer’ – a DP 2 heavy lift crane vessel (HLCV) – for an FPSO installation job offshore Brazil. The assignments included engineering of a 192 tonnes gypsy winch grillage and an over boarding tool to handle 120t torpedo piles. FEM calculations were performed on all constructions including the effects on local hull structure.
The single point of contact for Jumbo was KENC’s manager engineering Cor Hilbrink. Within four months we successfully delivered all calculations and engineering work to full satisfaction of Jumbo.
Jeroen Alberts, lead engineer at Jumbo:
“We are very happy with the pleasant collaboration. KENC delivered well on time and made a positive impact on the lead time of the project.”
