Takula weighing operation, Korea
ALE was contracted to perform the weighing of the Takula topside prior to a skidded load-out in South Korea.
The weighing of such platforms is critical to the transportation
and installation of the piece. Our specialist Offshore Division used twenty four 600t capacity Weightor jacking units to complete the weighing, the team calculated the weight at 5,649.28t this result had an accuracy of 99.91% and gave a centre of gravity reading to
within 10mm. These results are crucial for the ballasting calculations required to ensure the successful transfer from port to barge. The weight and centre of gravity is also critical to the calculations made for the lifting and installing of the topside to its foundations at sea ensuring that the correct equipment is used for the final installation.
