Engineering & Transport

Engineering & Transport

Precise transport schedules and load-out plans are essential for efficient and rapid installation. We prepare in advance all the documentation and calculations needed by the MWS, authorities and client representatives so as to avoid any unnecessary delays.

An efficient installation starts onshore where the staging area has to be rigorously organised for the load-out of the components to the installation or shuttle vessels. The handling of large assemblies requires specialised knowledge of the lifting forces involved, and the dynamic behaviour of the components along with their structural characteristics. KNUD E. HANSEN A/S has developed advanced analytical methods to evaluate these factors and determine the necessary set-up procedures and processes for safe lifting operations. 

Prior to load out we will analyse a vessel with respect to its stability and behaviour, deck load capacity and operational performance. If required we can then undertake any design and engineering required to transform it into an efficient installation asset.
