Equipment Installation

SPETSTYAZHAVTOTRANS performs equipment installation into its design position using special lifting and transportation systems  SBL-1100MK5 and B-SET.

In 2013 we completed the first in Russia erection and installation of 4 hydrocracking reactors weighing up to 1,306 tonnes at the Achinsk Refinery.

Here is how Spetstyazhavtotrans President Sergey Tropin comments on this unique event: Emerging of such a technology for lifting overweight cargo in Russia is a great leap forward for engineering, construction and installation in the national petrochemical sector”.

Equipment

B-SET is a unique self-erecting lift system with hydraulic strand jacks. It is capable of lifting equipment weighing from 5 to 1,600 tonnes to the height up to 105 meters and installing it into its design position with the accuracy up to 1 millimeter. It is manufactured by a Dutch company Enerpak. There are only two such systems operating in the whole world: one of them is in Russia at Spetstyazhavtotrans, and the other — in the USA.

B-SET Advantages

  • B-SET can be fully assembled for work within 10–15 days and disassembled within 6–8 days
  • Minimal assembling site size is 25х39 m
  • Maximum pressure to the bearing surface does not exceed 15 t/m2
  • B-SET is operated from the remote automated control cabin
  • Standalone power supply
  • All components are deployed in standard euro trailers
  • B-SET can be operated at the wide range of ambient temperature from -20 up to +45 °C
  • Highly wind resistant
  • No overloading or deformation of construction site surface.

 

SBL 1100 (SUPER BOOM LIFT)

  • Total lifting capacity of 4 modules is 1,100 tonnes
  • One module weights 11.950 tonnes
  • SBL can be fully assembled for work within 4–5 hours and disassembled within 3 hours
  • Minimal required space for work is 28 sq.m
  • SBL is operated from the remote control unit
  • Standalone power supply
  • All components are deployed in 6–7 standard euro trailers
  • SBL SBL can be operated at the wide range of ambient temperature from -20 up to +45 °C
