Bilfinger UK partners with Layher UK to deliver flagship ‘FlexBeam’ underdeck system

Engineering and maintenance contractor Bilfinger UK, in collaboration with Layher UK, designed the world’s first underdeck scaffolding system using FlexBeam to provide safe access to the underside of an oil rig.

Bilfinger UK was tasked to deliver a fit-for-purpose solution which would provide safe access to the underside of the platform to remove and replace the underdeck oily drains pipework.

Bilfinger UK partnered with Layher Scotland’s technical team to design the system scaffold configuration using Layher’s cutting edge aluminium scaffolding FlexBeam, reducing construction time by 40% when compared with traditional conventional tube and fitting scaffolding.
