After that, the readers will proceed to the configuration of the unit, including the guides, parts of the rig elevating system, legs, footings and others.
The operation modes have been covered in a separate chapter with the focus made on the transit and preloading, working in elevated condition, full air gap operations etc. The remaining chapters of the publication are dealing with the classification requirements applicable to this type of rig, design considerations, and unit sensitivities.
