FAT & SAT Testing of Offshore Crane

The Crane is a NORSOK specified crane, i.e. it is designed to operate in the harsh North Sea Offshore environment off the Norwegian coast.

ALATAS offshore crane engineers carried out the crane installation, function testing and commission in the yard, and ALATAS load testing department supplied water bag test loads to carry out the load tests. Prior the gross overload testing, several meetings were heled between Yard, Owner and DNV class surveyor to draw up safe and approved overload test procedures.

The load tests were carried out successfully and the crane got class approved and received its DNV Class Certificate.
