Aiken Group were recently tasked to carry out A60 fire door change outs on board the Ensco 101 jack-up installation. This operation took place quayside at Able yard, Hartlepool.
There were some challenges to overcome with the installs due to the nature of the existing fabrication methods on the installation. The original A60 internal fire door and the external A0 watertight doors are fabricated in such a way that the two doors are initially installed as one unit.
Aiken Group removed the existing A60 internal door and installed a complete new steel structure with 150 mm x 70 mm x 10 mm steel angle. The A60 door installation was then carried out in the normal procedure.
The project involved the change out of 10 doors in total.
