On the 19th of January Ardent finished load-in of the last platform sections from Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s jack-up vessel Blue Tern to the Hoondert yard in Flushing, marking the completion of a successful offshore campaign for the removal of the Perenco Tyne & Guinevere platforms.

A first time ever to remove two topsides & two jackets in a single trip on a jack-up barge, resulting in minimal clearances that required engineering at its finest. Both platforms, with a total weight of 2550mT, are now ready for recycling and disposal.

Ardent was responsible for the entire EPRD campaign: from the engineering, procurement, removal, to the transport, onshore disposal and recycling.

Ardent said it would like to express their gratitude for a successful cooperation with our client and all our partners that have made this happen. We’re ready for the next offshore challenge in the Salvage, Renewables or Oil & Gas sector!

“This is the first Oil & Gas decommissioning work done by Fred. Olsen Windcarrier, and represents a new market segment for us”, said Henrik Mork, Head of Project Execution, Fred. Olsen Windcarrier.
