Did you know that marketing  your services can be done quite effectively via LinkedIn and Facebook? The older generation might not be interested, but since last year, I have learned how social media can become powerful marketing tools. In July 2012,  my website attracted approx. 8-9,000 visitors per month and with the help of some SEO Plugins (Search Engine Optimization Software) installed at my web host server, the number of visitors increased to 12-14,000 per month in Sept. 2012 and now I am up to 25-35,000 visitors per month.

More Companies in  the Heavy Transport, Lifting, Shipping and Offshore Industry have realized that becoming a sponsor of my activities and website, can help them in promoting their business on a worldwide scale.
 
I am still presenting  my Seminars / Masterclasses “Heavy Transport & Lifting  and hope to continue doing so, until the numbers of accidents in our Industry decrease significantly. Unfortunately we have not reached that point yet.

Have Fun!! Subsea 7 crew’s Africa pop video becomes internet hit

The crew of a Subsea 7 vessel off the coast of Equatorial Guinea have become an internet sensation thanks to their homemade music video.

Aberdeen man Darren Flynn enlisted the help of his shipmates on board the BOURBON PERIDOT to perform Toto’s 1983 hit Africa while at sea off Luba.   Now the video has become a smash hit on Facebook, with oil barrels, pumps and even fish standing in for musical instruments as the vessel’s crew mime to the song.

Published on 2 Oct 2013

Our own version of the music video for “Africa” by Toto we made on our boat in Equatorial Guinea in West Africa.

“I did the first couple of scenes with Subsea 7 guys, and then a couple of other guys on the boat thought it was good so they also wanted in,” he told Energy Voice. “As the thing progressed more and more people wanted in, from the captain to the company representative.” The 33-year-old, who works as an ROV pilot supervisor on the ship, shot the video on a camera he had taken with him to Equatorial Guinea to try and repair. “I got it fixed and thought I should do a couple of test videos,” he said.

Stanlow cat cracker on UK motorway

 News, Projects, Transport  Comments Off on Stanlow cat cracker on UK motorway

Earlier in 2013 Essar Energy’s Stanlow oil refinery took delivery of a 450 tonne catalytic cracker unit. It was one of the largest loads to have been moved along UK roads for many years.

Source: IC

The 450 tonne load travels along the M53 motorway in the UK

The 18 metre tall, 450 tonne load was transported from Ellesmere Port docks on the north west coast of England to the refinery using self propelled modular transporter (SPMT). The SPMT was made up of 30 axles lines, four files wide. Combined with the cargo, the gross weight of the transport was 700 tonnes.

For part of the journey the cargo was moved along the M53, an 18.9 mile motorway on the Wirral Peninsula. Along that road 16 motorway lights had to have their lamps removed as they where preventing forward progress of the load.

Once off the motorway steady progress was made as preparations, including tree pruning, had been previously carried out. It took six hours for the transport to cover the four mile (6.5 km) journey to the refinery.

The unit is part of a five year project to exchange the head unit of the residue cat cracker. It is the largest in Europe and will enable the refinery to process the poorest parts of crude oil into diesel. Continue reading “Stanlow cat cracker on UK motorway” »
