1000 erectors, one big project
15 April 2008
Over 1000 scaffold erectors working seven days a week in three shifts are assembling around 6000 t of Layher scaffolding on the enormous Ormen Lange natural gas project on the coast of Norway. The plant will process, store and transport natural gas from an offshore field.
ThyssenKrupp Xervon Norway AS is responsible for erecting the scaffolding, as well as protective coatings that will amount to around 150000 m2. The enclosures and protective roofs allow building work to continue even in Norway's winter weather conditions
Shiploads of scaffolding material were supplied from Germany to Norway by ThyssenKrupp Xervon. The structures being scaffolded range from very simple buildings to structures built around giant plant components
The scaffolding will be modified, dismantled and reassembled continually during the project until the end of this year
