NRA Flare

NRC HP & LP Flare Tip Change

In 2019, the decision was made to use a helicopter to remove the North Rankin Alpha HP Flare tip. The helicopter lift required careful planning, preparation, a custom-designed ultra-lightweight scaffold system capable of holding 2.5 Tons, handrails made of fibreglass, and the implementation of a custom lifting davit.

A flare tip replica was used to trial these concepts in Vertech’s training facility with Woodside and Wood in attendance. The flare tip was successfully changed out during the 2019 shutdown window using a multi-disciplined rope access team and vital support from a helicopter operator.
