Offshore staff

GDANSK, Poland
– Protea has delivered its second 50-ton safe working load (SWL) ram luffing crane for Statoil’s Heidrun FSU, which is currently under construction by Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea.

The crane recently completed a comprehensive factory acceptance test at the company’s production facility in Kluczbork, southern Poland, and will now be shipped to South Korea for installation.

It features a structurally efficient box boom (rather than a more complex lattice boom), two hydraulic cylinders for ram luffing and its latest control system.

Tomasz Paszkiewicz, Protea’s managing director said: “The Heidrun FSU cranes clearly demonstrates our capabilities as a turnkey supplier of high-quality offshore lifting equipment – from concept development, detail design through to production, installation and commissioning. We look forward to delivering similar cranes in the future.”
