Scope of work:

We performed an inspection and repair on a gearbox CFEM 27H6SP.

GBS Gearbox Services was approached by a customer in the maritime market, they were planning to cut an oilrig in several pieces to be able to fit a narrow bay in his journey to the Caspian Sea. Our job was to inspect and make full inspection reports of all jack up gearboxes on the oilrig, the scope contained; preforming visual inspections, also with endoscope, on all 72 gearboxes, providing full inspection reports, making revision proposals regarding damage found inside the gearboxes.

The oilrig was located in the Rotterdam harbor, in order to get a good visual of the gearboxes we first had to withdraw the oil inside of the gearboxes. We made a first inspection of the gearboxes with the endoscope, and continued the process on all the gearboxes. Within less than 4 weeks, we did a full inspection on the 72 gearboxes and provided our customer with inspection rapports and a revision proposal regarding any found damages.

The conversion operations consists of:

  • Performing a visual inspection on 72 jack-up gearboxes with endoscope
  • Making complete inspection reports.
  • Making revision proposals regarding the damage found inside the gearboxes.
