Crane Boom

Bilfinger Salamis UK was tasked with erecting scaffolding to facilitate the successful removal and replacement of a crane boom.


The Bilfinger team executed over 130 tonnes of conventional tube and fitting scaffolding, over six weeks.

Challenges which were overcome included:

  • Structural restrictions on the platform jacket given the 130 tonnes of scaffolding required to construct the design, taking six weeks to erect
  • Scaffolding design to withstand the loading from the boom and associated equipment


Facilitated by the scaffolding erected by Bilfinger, the crane boom was successfully removed and replaced, without incident.
