Extreme measures

Four J D Neuhaus type EH50 air-operated monorail hoists have been supplied and mounted by Westcon Løfteteknikk AS of Bergen to the Maersk offshore rig Guardian. They were specified for the synchronised lifting and handling of an 18.3/4” 15,000psi BOP unit before and after drilling operations. Two hoists are each mounted on twin parallel overhead rails, with each hoist providing 50-tonne load and 20-metre lift capacities for between deck operations
