Intelligent crane & lifting technology


Intebloc delivers intelligent crane and lifting technology which connects people, equipment and data.

Intebloc Ltd, was established to develop a range of technologies to improve safety performance, reduce costs and increase productivity in crane and lifting operations. Their first product is the revolutionary Rig-Ware system. 

Rig-Ware provides improved operational efficiency at the deck crew level, easier management of lifting operations at the supervisory level and access to previously unavailable usage data and trends for decision making. By streamlining the day to day control of lifting equipment, Rig-Ware delivers significant and tangible benefits in the areas of efficiency improvement, cost savings and safety performance.

Rig-Ware is delivered on easy to use software accessed through an ATEX Zone 1 tablet. Management can access all the information and trends through the management portal.

The benefits Rig-Ware offers are a reduction in time spent locating equipment, a more efficient check In/Out process, automated reporting, seamless provision of check lists and reduced 3rd party inspection times.

Instrumental in the development of Rig-Ware has been the high level of customer input through exhaustive field trials. Stena Drilling was the first major offshore player to trial an early version of Rig-Ware on several of its rigs over an extended period. Feedback from these trials was incorporated into the later Rig-Ware versions and have greatly enhanced the final offering.

Ross McLeod, Intebloc CEO: “We are extremely grateful for Stena’s input which has identified a number of improvements we had not previously considered. This feedback and their involvement in the extensive trials is part of our development ethos - “by the user, for the user”.” Stena then went on to be one of the first companies to adopt the system and it is currently being rolled out across their fleet. Other contracts from major North Sea operators have followed.”

Stena Drilling is also an industrial partner supporting the development of Intebloc’s next product which will greatly improve the safety and productivity of crane operations. This project is part funded by the Oil and Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) and will be launched in 2021.
