MAERSK Supply Service has been awarded a contract for the removal of the Dunlin Alpha platform’s subsea kit, by operator Fairfield.
Four jacket-mounted drilling conductors and two conductor guide frames will be removed using a I-class vessel.
Oliver Trouve, MSS head of integrated solutions said: “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.
