Intebloc, an award winning crane and lifting technology firm, has been awarded a three-year contract on Oct. 20 from Stena Drilling to provide Rig-Ware, its data management system, to enable increased control of vessel lifting equipment. 

Deployed offshore across six of Stena Drilling’s assets in Europe, Africa and South America, Rig-Ware will allow onsite personnel to track and monitor the integrity and usage of all loose and fixed lifting equipment. The technology will improve offshore safety and reduce the risk of lifting equipment failures. In addition, the system will also provide real-time inventory data analysis, enabling quicker and more informed decision making for lifting equipment management. 

The award follows several successful trials on Stena Spey and Stena IceMAX to demonstrate the full functionality of the system, its speed, ease of use and its capability to replace conventional paper-based systems. 

This contract marks an incredible milestone for Intebloc,” Ross Mcleod, Intebloc CEO, said. “Stena Drilling has been integral to the development of the Rig-Ware system. Their feedback enhanced our offering to control assets, protect equipment and optimise deck management. We’ve already demonstrated that Rig-Ware has been a real asset to Stena Drilling’s lifting operations and look forward to working on this project together.”

Founded in 2017, Aberdeen-based Intebloc provides transformative crane and lifting technology to improve safety and efficiency across the construction, marine and energy markets.
