Lifting of a Tiltable Pipe Lay System

Market: Civil Construction
Scope of Work: Liftting of a tiltable pipe lay system
Location: Rotterdam, The Netherlands
Client: Huisman BV
Period: October 2019
HLV: Rambiz

The lifting operation was executed on October 4, 2016 at Huisman in Rotterdam (Schiedam), the Netherlands. The 2430 tonne tiltable pipe lay system was lifted from its construction location on the Huisman quay, transported to its designated location on the Scanid Buzios and put into position. It was a challenging project as all this was carried out with a maximum allowable tilt of 0.4°, limited space for HLV in the harbour and a 2mm tolerance for installation. Huisman’s preparation and the impressive cooperation between Scaldis and Huisman ensured that this challenging project was a success.
