Another world record by the largest crane in the world


Published on

TAISUN, the strongest crane in the world and already holding the world record for the heaviest weight lifted by crane, can be seen setting the world record for "heaviest topsides lifted by crane". The topsides being lifted is for Saipem's "Frigstad D90" semi submersible drilling rig "Scarabeo 9" weighing an enormous 17,100 metric ton.

  29. 29. ABOUT SCARABEO 9<br />The largest capacity semi submersible drilling rig in the world<br />The Semi Submersible rig “SS Scarabeo 9” (previously “SS Frigstad Oslo”) is built on a rig design owned by Frigstad Engineering Inc. <br />The “Frigstad D90” Semi rig was designed as an Ultra Deepwater Rig from the beginning, and not enhanced from an older shallow-mid water rig design. <br />The various rig capacities were selected based on latest industry requirements for ultra deep water operations, as well as the latest requirements for extended reach horizontal wells and modern development drilling requirements. The hull and marine systems were then designed to fit these operational requirements. <br />The resulting Frigstad D90 design is probably the worlds most capable and efficient as well as the largest capacity semi submersible drilling rig in the world built or under construction today. <br />
