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-inch 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.
“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,” says Olivier Trouvé, Head of Integrated Solutions.
Project management and engineering commences this year, with offshore execution planned for 2022 or 2023 depending on option selected.
