Modification of 13 pcs Woodfield Marine Loading Arms at BP Rotterdam

The BP Refinery Rotterdam owns 13 Woodfield loading arms built 1971 that all have been for overhaul and modification at JLS loading arm service during a 10 year program. Since these loading arm did not have removable elbows at the swivel joints the repair or a swivel leakage was almost impossible to perform at site. During the overhaul the arms we modified and executed with a new design swivel joint and removable elbows. Also all hinges, bearings and hydraulics on the loading arm has been exchanged by new and the entire loading arm has been blasted and painted according to the customer’s specification.
