Dutch transport and installation firm Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) has won an additional contract on Maersk Oil's US$3.6 billion Tyra Redevelopment Project offshore Denmark.
Following the award of the transportation and installation contract for the processing amd accommodation platform earlier this year, that required the high-end lifting capacity of HMCs newbuild Sleipnir, Maersk Oil has awarded an additional contract to HMC for extensive offshore lifting services in the Tyra East and West complexes related to the replacement of the wellhead and riser platform topsides.
The scope of work comprises the removal, transportation and disposal of topsides, bridges and a jacket with a combined weight of around 17,0000ton and the subsequent transportation and installation of various new topsides and bridges with a combined maximum weight of around 15,000-ton. Offshore operations are scheduled to be performed in 2020.
Today, McDermott also announced it had won a major construction contact for topsides, bridges, flares and module support frames on the Tyra project.
“The scope of work under this contract represents a critical phase of the Maersk Oil Tyra Redevelopment project and involves a number of delicate offshore lift operations. We appreciate the trust Maersk Oil has once again placed in HMC by awarding this work to us”, says Chief Commercial Officer Harke Jan Meek.
