Hertel Access operates right in front of head office
In the first week of May, a Hertel Access team performed maintenance on the GSS Monarch with great success.
The six Rope Access specialists completed the job well within the allotted time. The jack-up platform is moored right in front of Hertel’s head office in Rotterdam.
A jack-up is a mobile platform with long extending legs for maintenance or drilling at sea. Our specialist Rope Access colleagues were commissioned to replace the metal anodes, zinc blocks that protect the structure from corrosion.
The three-legged structure is 180 metres high and has no landings. The place where the work had to be carried out was therefore very difficult to reach with a crane. Our colleagues had the demanding task of grinding off the old anodes, removing them, then fitting the new ones, welding them in place and applying preservation treatment. Hertel nonetheless completed the job without any problems.
Working with ropes is an innovative method that represents a safe alternative for working in high and inaccessible locations. The rope techniques used by Hertel Access combine various disciplines and access methods to ensure that difficult tasks can be completed as efficiently as possible.
