Various Heavy Lifts were planned for the installation of sphere structures for a “forest of steel tree structures”. The client requested Eager.one to have all lifting plans being reviewed by an independent Subject Matter Expert. Moreover they requested us to be on the job site to supervise the major lifts, the goal of our presence, zero accidents and zero injuries during the installation works.
A high way crossing in Saudi Arabia was ready to receive a large number of special sphere structures for the KKR – KAR – West Spiral Sphere Project. This project comprises of the erection of the columns and spheres with a CC 8800-1. In view of risk mitigation and operational control the client wants a cold eye review of plans and operations manuals and expertise on the jobsite during the critical lifts.
The lifting plans and operations manuals were reviewed by the Eager.one operations team in the Utrecht office to make sure all critical aspects were covered and no grey areas were left unanswered. Any comments and recommendations were reported and the final plans were updated.
We attended the kick-off meeting on site to make ourselves familiar with the situation and to discuss the day-to-day operations with the team on site. Upon start of the operations the Eager.one consultant set up the supervision during the day and night shift and coordinated the operations on a daily basis. All critical lifts were supervised by the Eager.one supervisor.
This combination of independent desk review and supervision on site was experienced as a catalyst for all parties involved to work in accordance with the plans and focus on safety during all the operations.
