Lowther-Rolton were appointed by WorleyParsons to undertake a Technical Audit of the land transportation, laydown dressing support and installation of an Absorber column weighing up to 595Te dressed, including lifting/tailing attachments, together with the design check of the associated engineering aspects and operational attendance during transportation and lifting operations.
The Absorber arrived at East Arm Wharf Darwin, where it was discharged by ship’s gears onto a Goldhofer draw-bar trailer for onward transportation to ConocoPhillips’ Darwin LNG facility at Wickham Point. It was subsequently self-offloaded and jacked approximately 1.8m by Goldhofer trailer onto support stools for final dressing. On completion of dressing the Absorber was tailed by LR11350 (main) and M18000 (tail) crane and subsequently installed by LR11350, configured with 430Te superlift counterweight.
