Alex. Birger Grieg A/S was in 2014 awarded by DOF Subsea, to perform and execute the load out of a 286 tons MHS from Molde to Odense, Denmark. Due to the surroundings of the manufactures facility, it quickly became obvious the MHS Tower had to be moved to a more suitable location, from where a HLV could load it.
The Scope therefore consisted of following:
– Organize floating crane for lifting the MHS Tower at the Manufactures location, and transport it to temporally storage.
– Organize temporally storage at Moldegaard terminal, from where a suitable HLV could load the cargo.
– Organize barge for generals, which were moved alongside the HLV for loading by vessels gear.
– Organize seafastening for generals at the barge.
– Organize mobile cranes for hooking on/off & loading generals at the manufactures facility.
– Organize trucking of generals, not ready in time for the HLV and/or not suitable for a sea voyage.
The HLV loaded the MHS Tower on the tank top, and performing the voyage to Denmark with Open Hatches. This gave the client DOF Subsea maximum protection of the tower. In addition, the given time constrain for arriving with the Tower in Denmark, was kept by a good margin.
