J Barnsley Cranes

The Challenge:

To design a double redundancy system to increase safety to a new level on cranes operating on a rig in the Johan Sverdrup oilfield, which has been built to NORSOK standards. This unique to market control system allows the cranes to operate with a back up system so that in the event of an incident, the crane's load would safely lower.


Banelec developed and supplied a "first to market" system with an Emergency Operating System (EOS) to meet the double redundancy specification: NORSOK R002 annexk and control system performance level / E.
