On a semi-submersible offshore drilling unit a Foxdrill team of five rope access inspectors recently completed a full inspection of the winterization structure.
Working in harsh conditions year round, this is essential protection for drilling equipment and rig crew. The scope included visual inspection of the structure, panels & doors. Additionally bolt tightness was verified and NDT inspection of specific parts of the structure was performed. To conclude activities, functional checks and adjustments were carried out on moving doors.
Using rope techniques to gain access to even the most challenging locations, the work was successfully completed within the planned timeframe.
