The Jacking System
The heart of the concept is the special, patented jacking system, called the MOPUJACK. The MOPUJACK will be delivered to the yard along with a license to build a platform.
The jacking “hardware”, meaning all components of the jacking system including the hydraulic cylinders and the electrical controls are produced in Denmark, Germany and USA.
In the MOPUFLEX concept you have the platform with Jacking mechanisms and secondly a vessel called a RigMover to transport the platform to future venues.
The RigMover is a heavy lifting vessel, which sails under the platforms, lifts and ferries them to the next desired position.
An advanced dynamic positioning system (DP3) is used to communicate with the “RigMover“ and enables platform placement within a few centimeters precision. The system has been developed and delivered by Lyngsø Marine in Hørsholm, Denmark.
The RigMover patent was filed month of December, 2011.
