Because jack-up rigs can often require a long lead time for completion, LeTourneau Offshore Products offers innovative LeTourneau Rig Kit Packages. These comprehensive components and design packages offer a confirmed supply of critical structure elements that interface perfectly with the rig class. This way, the risks of supply chain failure or design/component manufacturer issues are eliminated for both builder and owner. The components and basic class-approved rig design are provided under license to any LeTourneau approved shipyard, in almost any region of the world. LeTourneau Rig Kit Packages accommodate any of LeTourneau's five most popular jack-up rig designs.
Rig Kit Components
To meet high demands for gear rack and chord and bracing, LeTourneau manufactures each from ABS/DNV-approved special alloy, produced by LeTourneau's own steel mill. Guide structure components are also included, designed to reduce movement of the legs during jacking and elevation.
Elevating Systems and Controls
LeTourneau elevating units are designed to meet a wide range of offshore requirements, withstanding the harshest environments. They offer a range of normal elevating ratings and pre-load jacking ratings, and storm holding capabilities as great as 1,800 kips per pinion. Controls and monitoring are provided by clear redundant touch screen display panels.
Available in two sizes, these winches can pull 50,000 pounds and 100,000 pounds, respectively. Both are well proven in demanding offshore applications.
Pedestal Deck Cranes
Combining proven LeTourneau performance with solid-state electronic efficiency, the PCM-Series pedestal king post cranes respond faster, reduce maintenance, and lower operating costs.
Spud Can Point Structure
The heart of the spud can is the LeTourneau forged bottom point structure and center tube load path. The LeTourneau point aids in the positioning of the jack-up as well as supporting the full weight of the jack-up on rock bottom; for instance, the Super Gorilla imposes as much as 36 million pounds.
Cantilever Skidder Systems with Hold-Down Clamps
LeTourneau electro-mechanical skidders deliver 263,000 pounds of thrust at 6 feet per minute. Featuring a LeTourneau gearbox, motor, and brake assembly, they have proven their ability to move very large substructures in more than 200 jack-up installations.
Worldwide Fabrication License
Providing various levels of flexibility, LeTourneau offers worldwide licensing for every Rig Kit Package. This allows customers to choose the shipyard location, helping to control costs and fabrication scheduling.
Every LeTourneau Rig Kit Package is supported by LeTourneau's unmatched depth of experience and knowledge through dedicated customer service staff.
