oil rig assembly biggest crane in the world, TAISUN


The biggest and strongest crane in the world at work installing the 14000 ton deck box of the COSL Pioneer drilling semisubmersible on top of its 30 meter high, 9000 ton floating hull in a single operation. TAISUN makes it possible to build the completely outfitted deck box entirely at ground level, instead of piece-by-piece on top of the floating hull, at 30 meters high. This puts Yantai Raffles’ methodology ahead of its competitors in safety, effciency and overall project duration. The crane has won several awards, including the ASME Woelfel Best Mechnical Engineering Award, the OTC Spotlight on New Technology Award and a Guinness World Record for lifting the heaviest weight ever by a crane.

    The fire-crackers sounded like heads popping off bull-ring bolts… bad memories.

    To compare floating cranes with fixed cranes is a bit pointless? They are different beasts entirely, although all three mentioned are extremely impressive! I would love a tour of TAISUN though, any chance?

    That is very very impressive… but what really does it for me is the epic music and the totally OTT fireworks at the end, haha!!

    As I said: I can understand it is more efficient to use, and probably to build aswell, and since this business is all about cost and lifting capability you are of course right!
    The Taisun is naturally a big ingeneering effort, aswell as a cost saving tool. But when it comes to pure engineering I find the Thialf and the Saipem more thrilling.
    I wish you all luck with the Taisun!

    You’re right. While TAISUN cost 40 million US Dollar and takes 40 people to run, the Saipem 7000 and Thialf would cost more than 1 billion Dollar to construct these days, and take 300 people to operate, so they are indeed more impressive. But despite their complexity, their lifting capacity is not even close to this crane. In this respect I’d like to quote Charles Mignus: “Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.”

    I must say that Saipem 7000 and Thialf are fare more impressive than this; using gantry-cranes is cheating:)
    Although I can understand that it is far more effecient, when possible to use.
