4 turnkey rigmoves in a row.

The challenge
An experienced drilling operator asked us if we were able to move one of their drilling rigs from Austria to Romania and also offer domestic rigmove services in Romania. Their rig consists of 56 truckloads and the biggest piece is 14 meter long, 3 meter high and weighs 44 Ton. Besides the number of truckloads, dimensions and weights, the rough terrain in Romania made the local rigmoves a true challenge. 
Our solution
For every rigmove we plan a pre-move meeting (or meetings) with the key stakeholders, in which we discuss the overall planning and potential risks. We then go and do a route and sites investigation. All findings are inserted in the final transport- and crane planning. In the first part of this rigmove roundtrip (move from Austria to Romania), it was important to inform all transport contractors about the exact time off loading, cargo type and correct order of delivery at the rigsite. Our rigmove supervisors at both sites took care of that. 
After the first drilling campaign in Romania was finished, our customer asked us to move the drilling rig two times within Romania. These locations were in remote areas and the access roads to the rigsite had gravel on them and were very steep. At the start of the rigmove these road were wet as well. By using our strong 8x4 trucks, guidance vehicles and experienced staff, we managed to complete the rigmoves without any serious incident or delay. 
Because the drilling rig needed to be used for a geothermal project in Germany we were asked to move the rig back to Germany. Just as the other rigmoves, our customer asked us to organize the transportation (incl. all permits) and cranes at both sides. In this case the customer organized the demobilization and mobilization themselves.

Also the return rigmove went according plan and the rig started drilling again perfectly on schedule.      
This rigmove roundtrip had some serious challenges in it. But because the customer was very open in their communication and had trust in our quality, we made this a success.
