Fagioli on Syncrolift Installation in Genova
Fagioli was contracted for final installation of a Syncrolift platform in Genova. The 900 ton structure was transported from manufacturing area in Brindisi onto a dedicated barge by means of 4 x 10 axle lines SPMTs and sea transported up to Genova port. Platform dimensions were the followings: length 84 m; width 22 m ; height 2 m. The most challenging part of the job was the load in operation of the platform. SPMTs configuration was changed twice in order to allow the structure to be loaded onto the quay.
First the platform was moved ahead with the trailers positioned on the bow of the barge keeping the weight on the SPMTs positioned on the stern. The SPMTs were re-configured in order to move the platform in parallel to the barge axis. The platform was unloaded from barge and laid onto dedicated stools. No. 4 EZ-600 + No. 4 Enerpac SBL1100 gantry lifting systems were used to connect the platform and execute the lowering operation and complete the installation. Fagioli engineering department was also involved for the operations of ballasting, lashing, securing and mooring.
