SLPE has designed a number of accommodation modules for up to 100 persons capacity. We have also designed replacement accommodation modules for older platforms and supported the full platform modifications and T&I required to deliver these replacement modules.
A particular challenge was the Nexan Buzzard accommodation module which could not be lifted in a conventional manner from the top of the module due to insufficient crane height. The client asked us to consider a bottom lift approach to overcome the lift height restrictions on site. Calculating the precise position of the module centre of gravity, bespoke rigging dimensions and lift dynamics was critical as it had to be right first time. It required innovation and a series of complex analyses which resulted in SLPE delivering an appropriate design solution and a successful bottom lift installation.
