Statoil takes Palfinger Dreggen’s cranes for Gullfaks

Norwegian oil and gas company Statoil has awarded Palfinger Dreggen a contract to rebuild and upgrade BOP cranes on the oil and gas company’s Gullfaks field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.

Each of the BOP cranes to be delivered from Palfinger Dreggen will have the capacity to lift 2 x 20 tons, the crane manufacturer said.

The cranes will also be equipped with an auxiliary hoist with SWL 5 tons for smaller lifts. The contract will see Palfinger Dreggen deliver new trolleys with hoisting machineries, new control systems for the cranes and radio remote systems.

Engineering, project management and procurement will mainly be performed in Bergen, Norway while the production will take place at Palfinger Dreggen’s factory in Poland.

Halldor Rongve, managing director of Palfinger Dreggen, said: “We are proud to once again be chosen as supplier to Statoil. The contract is important for Palfinger Dreggen in order to secure full activity for the company in a period where the activity within the offshore segment is low.”

According to the company, the installation and commissioning of the cranes will start in the end of 2016 and continue until summer 2017.
