Jack-up Barge Jacking System Health Check

Scope of Work:
A contractor is required to provide experienced technicians to attend Saudi Aramco jack-up barges offshore to conduct a robust and detailed health check of the barges electro-hydraulic jacking system along with associated controls and safety systems.

The health check will comprise:

1. A detailed physical examination of the system components:
a. Electrical
b. Hydraulic
c. Mechanical
d. Control and Safety System

2. The supervised operation of the jacking system under normal operational conditions in the field.The performance is to be recorded and compared with original performance data. Any discrepancies or deviations are to be explored and possible explanations provided.

Upon completion of the health check a detailed report is to be provided for each barge which is to include all observed operational performance criteria and compared with original jacking trial data.

Additionally, where the contractor believe opportunities for upgrade or improvements exist these are to be presented in a clear and well-argued manner for consideration by Saudi Aramco.
