Market: Civil Construction 
Scope of Work: Lifting and installation of a drilling tower onto the Globetrotter II
Location: Schiedam, The Netherlands

This lifting operation was executed at the premises of Huisman in Rotterdam (Schiedam), the Netherlands. The project consisted of lifting the 2600 tons drilling tower from its construction quay and transporting it to its designated location on the drilling vessel "Globetrotter II".

A three point lifting configuration constructed far below the centre of gravity made this project unique and challenging. The inclination of the entire structure had to be continuously monitored in order to guarantee, the stability of the lifting configuration.

Comprehensive preparation in coordination with Huisman made this lifting operation a success.
