Maersk Supply Service awarded subsea removal for Dunlin Alpha platform
This is a technically challenging scope with large periods of time spent alongside a platform.
Maersk Supply Service has been awarded a contract for the removal of the Dunlin Alpha platform’s subsea conductors and guide frames, by Fairfield Betula Limited.
Maersk Supply Service will remove four 30” jacket-mounted drilling conductors and two associated conductor guide frames using an I-class vessel. With outstanding power management capabilities and dual cranes, combined with WROVs launched via moonpool, the Maersk Supply Service I-class vessels are a differentiator in maximising uptime and weather operability.
Olivier Trouvé, Head of Integrated Solutions, says:
“This is a technically challenging scope with large periods of time spent alongside a platform. It is gratifying to see our engineered technical solution selected by Fairfield, as the removal of older conductors that cannot be pulled through topsides remains a challenge throughout the North Sea.”
Project management and engineering commences this year, with offshore execution planned for 2022 or 2023 depending on option selected.
