Liebherr in crane modernization project on Molikpaq platform off Russia

first_imgLiebherr said that its maritime customer service was renewing two RL 1500 ram luffing offshore cranes. An existing crane, type BOS 1900 will be upgraded with the same generation control system as the RL 1500.According to the company, several Liebherr firms are cooperating to implement the project. The contract drafting and signing was carried out by Liebherr-Russia OOO, Liebherr-MCCtec Rostock Gmbh is responsible for the operational refurbishment of the platform while Liebherr-Werk Biberach GmbH will participate in the conversion with a tower crane which is used as a support crane for lifting large components.The company added that, since the start of the project in 2016, over 6,000 planning hours have already been invested in the project.The replacement of the first crane with a brand-new Liebherr RL 1500 was executed from spring to autumn 2018.In order to be able to move large parts on the platform, Liebherr installed a tower crane of the type 230 HC-L 8/16 Litronic to be used as a support crane. Also, a special sliding system was designed and built to move particularly heavy components and modules over the platform. The entire conversion project is planned to be completed by the end of 2020.The modernization of the existing BOS 1900 was also completed while the third phase would include the installation of the second ram luffing crane until the end of 2019.Both RL 1500 cranes have a cylinder luffing box boom design and a diesel-hydraulic driven main engine. Considering the project specifics, the cranes can handle loads up to 65 tonnes which is 25 tonnes more than the standard lifting capacity of Liebherr RL 1500.Sakhalin Energy-operated Molikpaq is Russia’s first offshore oil production platform. Commercial oil production from the platform was launched in 1999. Since December 2008, oil from the platform streams through the trans-Sakhalin pipeline system to the oil export terminal of the Prigorodnoye production complex. Switzerland-based Liebherr is carrying out a modernization project on Sakhalin Energy’s Molikpaq platform off the Russian island of Sakhalin.last_img read more

Terry Sent off as Chelsea Progresses in FA Cup

first_imgChelsea captain John Terry was sent off on his first start since October as the Premier League leaders overcame League One Peterborough in the FA Cup.The Blues made nine changes for the third-round tie and almost trailed when Asmir Begovic saved Lee Angol’s close-range header.But Antonio Conte’s side had 20 shots by half time, with Pedro’s curled finish and a drilled Michy Batshuayi effort giving them a cushion, before Willian drove in from 18 yards after the break.Terry saw red for bringing Angol down as the last man and Tom Nicholls prodded in from six yards for a buoyed Posh, only for Pedro to restore a three-goal advantage from the edge of the box.Terry’s error will draw scrutiny but Chelsea were impressive in responding to defeat at Tottenham, their first in 11 matches in all competitions.They exuded energy from the off and had 20 shots by half-time as squad players such as Nathaniel Chalobah and Ruben Loftus-Cheek impressing in midfield.Antonio Conte’s side will learn their fourth round opponents in Monday’s live draw on BBC Two and online from 19:00 GMT.Conte felt Terry was hard done by, claiming the decision was “not right”.But the central defender – who was making his 50th FA Cup start but only his eighth appearance in all competitions this season – clearly impeded the impressive Angol and he has now collected three of Chelsea’s last six red cards.The ex-England captain, 36, instantly put his hands on his head and protested with referee Kevin Friend to no avail.Before his early bath Terry had completed 100% of his 30 passes, though he only won 20% of his duels, less than defensive partners Gary Cahill (50%) and the fit-again Kurt Zouma (60%).“John played a really good game,” added Conte. “For me, in this season he has shown me great ability.”Zouma’s return after 11 months out with a knee injury was a positive for Conte, who recalled defender Nathan Ake from loan at Bournemouth on Sunday.Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said: “I am pleased, when you change nine players it is never easy to play a good game and to be a team. Today we showed we were a team. I’m pleased for those who have played less as they have showed me good form.On the return of Kurt Zouma, Conte added: “I am very happy. It is a first game after a really bad injury and he is fully recovered. He played good. We know he can improve a lot.”Peterborough manager Grant McCann said: “I thought we were excellent. I thought we had two or three really good chances. I couldn’t believe Begovic saved from Angol.“The biggest difference is how clinical they are. It is something we need to work on. I thought the boys were outstanding and in the second half we matched them.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
