Kenz Cranes Delivers Cranes for Thistle Alpha Plaform

 

Kenz Cranes has delivered two identical 60t diesel-hydraulic Boom Hoist cranes to EnQuest on September 18th and October 24th of this year.

After successful Factory Acceptance Testing, the cranes were sea fastened and shipped to the client’s Peterhead shore based facility in the UK. At this location, the pair is awaiting final installation on EnQuest’s Thistle Alpha platform in the North Sea.

A special feature of these cranes is that they were designed in such a way that they could easily be dismantled for shipping and efficiently reassembled on location. In order to achieve this, detachable lifting frames were incorporated into their design. These frames facilitated efficient disassembly and transportation and will also aid in the reassembly and final installation.

Part of platform’s lifetime extension program, the cranes are expected to be installed in January and March of 2014 respectively.
