Transport of a piping module
Commissioned by: Instar
Location: Antipinsky Refinery, Russia
Moving pipe modules at a refinery. Commissioned by Instar, Holmatro supplied a synchonized positioning system combined with a skid system.
JSC Antipinsky Refinery was founded in July 2004 on the territory of one of the major oil and gas producing regions within the Russian Federation - The Tyumen Region, where most of Russian oil (64%) and natural gas (91%) reserves are concentrated. For the Antipinsky Oil Refinery, Instar Logistics transported pipe modules with a size of 35x8x8 meters and a weight of 200 tons.
On site at the Antipinsky Oil Refinery, the pipe modules needed to be transported and positioned.
Instar used a synchonized positioning system with six 150 ton aluminium cylinders in combination with a skid system.
Holmatro’s Skid Systems are suitable for moving industrial objects and installations of exceptional size and weight, to locations where using a crane is not an option. Due to the user-friendly modular construction of both systems they can be easily adapted for each load size and project.
Computer-controlled synchronized positioning of heavy loads, with high damage risk, has never been so easy with the Holmatro Synchronized Positioning System. Thanks to the multiple-split-flow pumps, each lifting point has its own single oil flow whereby the load can be positioned smoothly and with extreme precision.
