Scaldis installs Wintershall's L6-B platform

Watch as Scaldis Marine Contractors NV installs the L6-B platform in the Dutch sector of the North Sea, in Block L6.

In a joint effort between Wintershall Nordzee and Scaldis, a methodology was developed with a prime focus of minimizing the duration of the offshore activities, a reduction of risk and overall costs.

The complete platform was picked up from a quayside in Rotterdam using the Heavy Lift Vessel Rambiz that has a capacity of 3300-tonne. A special tool was developed to enclose the platform mast, via hydraulic opening doors, connecting the rigging to hydraulic shackles to the bottom part of the foundation. The structure was then lifted from the quayside and transported, in the hooks of the HLV Rambiz, to the installation side, northwest of Terschelling, The Netherlands.
