Moving two large concrete foundations across The Netherlands

The challengeOur client needed to move their drilling rig T49 from Vierpolders (NL) to Grubbenvorst (NL). After drilling the well on Grubbenvorst, the rig had to be transported to the storage location in Bad Bentheim (D). The challenge for this project was to disassemble, arrange temporary storage at Grubbenvorst, assemble, disassemble again, just-in-time loading, transport and discharging of the rig. All within in the planned time frame and without incidents.

The journeyWe responded to the RFQ sent out by the client to preselected suppliers. As geothermal drilling projects are mainly based on lump sums for provided services, our challenge was to prepare a qualitative proposal and to stay in budget. We were awarded the job based on the quality of our solution combined with the competitive bid.

Our solution
The Grubbenvorst location was not ready for drilling activities when the disassembly started on location Vierpolders. All 83 loads had to be stored temporarily, in such way that efficient assembly later on was guaranteed. We took care of the entire project with our crew for (dis-)assembly activities. We provided specialist cranes and 83 trucks and the coordination of all activities was kept in one hand. We also executed route surveys and aligned all of our client’s wishes and conditions by continuous planning, monitoring and evaluating. We discussed the plans in a dedicated pre-move meeting and joined daily update meetings. After completion of the project, we shared all gathered information and lessons learnt during an evaluation meeting.
