DOPPLER is honored to announce that the project “Maersk Oil Rig” won the first place in the contest “Project of the Year 2017”, in the category “Special purpose lifts”, organized by “Elevator World” magazine. It is of great importance for us, since for the specific project there was a thorough study due to the uniqueness of its requirements.
The project started when Maersk Drilling Company invited DOPPLER S.A. to carry out a survey of the feasibility of manufacturing an accommodation lift on a Resolute Oil Rig. Maersk, is a global oil and gas production, which provides drilling services to oil companies around the world. The head offices are placed in Copenhagen, Denmark, however, the company has offices in eleven countries around the globe.
A Passenger lift was required for the transportation of bed linen and other goods, between the laundry rooms and the rig's cabins. After extensive research from our company’s departments, the elevator we produced was a 1250kg capacity of 5 stops, 13m travel and 0.63m/s speed enclosed in an Elevator Trunk Structure, complying with authority rules and regulations, such as American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), Danish Maritime Authority, ISO8383 (lifts on ships) and Electrical Lines CEI-CENELEC .
Compliance to ISO8383 and ABS Guide for construction of shipboard elevators refers to Means of Escape, Specific Lighting solutions, Communications and Ventilations. The entire steel work, in primary load path, is made of High Grade S355J2 steel and extra guide shoes, brackets and rollers were supplied.
The Preassembled Electrical wiring includes LSF double insulated cables and flexes; IP65 rated connections, the biodegradable synthetic oil used in the power unit as well as the escape hatch and emergency ladders emphasize the EN81-72 lift compliance.
The special design tank is produced with a built in containment tray and it is also fitted with deflectors on top, in order to stop splash at 45 degrees, as required in ABS rules. Landing doors comply with EN 81 -58 (2 hour fire resistance) and they are manufactured to follow IS08383 (6)-Lifts for ships and Navy doors.
