To mark the successful development of the latest Proteus Ram Luffing crane, Protea is holding an open day on Wednesday 14 May 2014 at its industry leading production facility in Kluczbork, Poland.
At the event visitors will be able to witness first hand a technical demonstration of a 50t SWL Proteus crane that is being supplied for installation on a new build FSU to be operated by Statoil.
“The new Proteus crane design draws on the knowledge that my colleagues and I have gained from over 25 years of designing, building and operating offshore lifting equipment, ” explains Tomasz Paskiewicz, Protea’s CEO. “We have achieved exceptional performance whilst minimising overall weight, and complying with EN 13852-1 Offshore Cranes standard, DNV N Class standard, the latest NORSOK regulations and Statoil’s internal requirements – it is probably the highest specification offshore crane that has been delivered to date.”
In addition to the crane demonstration, visitors will be given a full tour of the Protea facility and also have an opportunity to learn about other recent projects including the supply of BOP cranes, pipe handling equipment, vehicle launch and recovery systems, and heave compensation systems.
