Ichthys Offshore Project Darwin NT Australia

Ichthys Offshore Project Darwin NT Australia

Project Ref: 60261
Client: DSME
Project: Ichthys Offshore Project Darwin NT Australia

Eilbeck Cranes has successfully completed Factory Acceptance Testing and delivered 5 cranes capacity ranging from 5t to 70t(50t+50t) Cranes for DSME for FPSO for the Ichthys LNG offshore Project.

The cranes have successfully passed a rigorous quality and hazardous testing phase by the client, prooving once again Eilbeck’s commitment and proficiency in manufacturing and commisioning for Ex-proof environment.

All cranes have been upgraded from European Standard compliance to Australian Standard IEC EX compliance, required for explosion proof cranes.

Next up 1x 25t Semi Portal Crane and 1 x 5t Single Girder Crane for SHI for the same project are currently being manufactured.

27.5t / 5t 7.19m 24m Double Girder Overhead travelling Crane Air Lock AFT FPSO Manual Brake release & Hazardous area
12.5t 5.4m 28.5m Single Girder Underslung Crane Air Lock FWD FPSO Manual Brake release & Hazardous area
6.3t 3.65m 20m Single Girder Underslung Crane FWD Workshop FPSO Manual Brake release
5t 5.4m 6m Single Girder Underslung Crane AFT Workshop FPSO Manual Brake release

All cranes have passed though the following:

  • Cranes are based on INPEX Specification (Projects Specifications are Specification of “TOTAL”).
  • Rigorous project quality and Special material requirement and material certification as per project specification.
  • Detailed hazardous area inspection for Australian standard and Project requirement.
  • DNV Design Verification & Certification.
  • DNV & Client Inspection.
  • DNV Load test certification of cranes @125%SWL.
