Project Overview

Installation of 2 free-fall lifeboats on Teekay’s Foinaven asset and Scopus involvement in port and starboard davit replacement at all key stages.


  • Initial Dimensional Survey to confirm as-built dimensions
  • Scopus Structural Engineering team modified initial design and incorporated as-built data to deliver a simpler and more efficient installation
  • Permanent presence offshore allowed Scopus to assist with confirmation surveys during lifts
  • Onshore confirmation surveys of partially fabricated davit sections
  • Onshore confirmation surveys during trial lifts and trial fits

Benefits delivered by Scopus:

  • Integrated team approach between Scopus and client, both onshore and offshore
  • First-time-fit of davit offshore
  • Ability to simplify the scope
  • Involvement throughout all phases ensured successful installation
