4 x EH 50 in Offshore Operation
In 2011 Westcon Lofteteknikk AS* delivered four JDN Monorail Hoists EH 50 to Maersk for the offshore rig “Guardian”, operating in the North Sea. The job of the hoists: synchronised handling of the BOP before and after drilling operations. Two hoists are each mounted on twin parallel beams providing a lifting height of 20m and a total lifting capacity of 200t.
The scope of delivery included the energy supply for a 23 meter beam length. The operation required the use of the F control with a main air emergency stop and load monitoring device. The hoists were delivered with a complete offshore documentation package. The photos were taken during installation works.
* Westcon Lofteteknikk AS is an authorised Norwegian Sole importer of JDN.
