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.
