Piece Large Decommissioning
Shetland’s capacity to handle large decommissioning projects are demonstrated by the combination on offer at Lerwick – from the deep-water access and berthing and extensive, tailored quayside facilities to the depth of experience, skills and resources available.
The port’s suitability for such projects has been demonstrated by the successful load in and decommissioning of the TCP2 module support frame by Peterson SBS and Veolia Environmental Services. Weighing approximately 8,730 tonnes, this was transported as a single piece from Total Norge’s Frigg gas field in 2007.
Part of the contract award from Aker Solutions for Total’s Frigg cessation project, the successful completion of the project is an excellent demonstration of our combined approach and Shetland’s capability for undertaking large scale decommissioning contracts.
This project was completed on schedule without any lost time injury or significant Health and Safety or Environmental incidents.
The, given, 98% recycling target was also exceeded, proving this to be an ecologically sound way of managing redundant offshore installations.
Other Projects / Ports
Contractors Peterson and Veolia have also successfully excuted major Load-in and Onshore Decommissioning projects in other ports, most notably Newcastle, where we received and processed over 9,000te of structures from the Southern North Sea (SNS), Shell Indefatiguable field - consisting of 5 platforms and jackets delivered on 8 north sea barges
