Flare Tip Replacement Davit – EGINA FPSO

For more than 20 years Eager.one has been involved in the design of flare tip replacement Davits.

Samsung / Total requested us to design and supply a removable Davit for the Egina FPSO, a system similar to what we have engineered for the Total AKPO FPSO in 2012.

Retractable vs. Engina removable Davit

Most Davits used on flare systems are retractable Davits. The main difference between a retractable David and the Egina removable David is that a removable Davit will be installed just before the flare tip replacement and removed once the replacement is completed. This means that the Davit will be stored in a container between flare tip replacements. A retractable Davit will remain on the flare tower, in retracted position the Davit is stored below a heatshield underneath the top platform.

The removable Davit is installed by means of an aluminium single pole (left crane in the picture). This single pole is lifted manual to the top platform and installs the removable davit piece by piece on top of the platform.

Flare tip replacement package

The package by Eager.one included the engineering of the equipment package, platform adjustments and method statements and the Fabrication and (load) testing of the equipment package. The package is conserved and packed in a dedicated container to withstand the humid climate in Nigeria.

Eager.one flare tip replacement equipment is designed to be operated by local maintenance teams, but the flare tip replacements can also be executed by our Eager.one team.
