Jacking System Inspection and Maintenance

Ensuring safe jacking operations and safeguarding crew
A jacking system is one of the most critical components of a jack-up, an offshore platform commonly used in the energy industry. A jack-up can be used in multiple ways, such as an exploratory oil and gas drilling platform, an offshore wind farm service platform for Installation, Operations & Maintenance (O&M) activities, and an accommodation platform for offshore personnel.
