Weighing

We offer weighing of modules with Center of Gravity determination – and we can weigh modules up to 1300 tonnes.

 

 

 

Weighing technique:

Weighing and CoG determination of modules, is one of our specialites. Throughout the years, we have weighed a large amount of modules, weighing up to 1300 tonnes.

Most weighings are conducted using four weight cells placed at specific locations underneath a module. Afterwards, the load of the module is transferred to the weight cells – using hydraulic jacks, or by lowering the module directly onto the weight cells. The loads are logged to our datasystem, and we calculate total weight and the CoG location for the structure.

Weight cells:

We use HBM weight cells, and have several different sizes. Using the weight cells, we can conduct weighing and CoG determination on modules from 50kg and up.

Standard:

We offer weighing in accordance with ISO 19901-5 – “Petroleum and natural gas industries — Specific requirements for offshore structures — Part 5: Weight and control during engineering and construction.”
