SEAJACKS KRAKEN RETURNS TO FALMOUTH FOR HELIDECK INSTALLATION
PROJECT REQUIREMENTS: THE REMOVAL OF REDUNDANT BLADE RACK AND RE-INSTALLATION OF A PREVIOUSLY REMOVED HELIDECK.
THE PROJECT: Kraken returned to Falmouth for 100 ton blade rack removal and 80 ton helideck installation.
The blade rack previously built and installed by A&P Falmouth in April 2011 was removed over a 4 day period.
The helideck was delivered by Seajacks to Falmouth by ship and lifted off the vessel onto the quayside, using two cranes to tandem lift the 80 ton structure. The helideck was lifted into place and welded in position, a procedure which took two days.
THE RESULT: The whole project was finished and back in service ahead of schedule. The helideck was lifted into place and welded into position, a procedure which took two days.
