SAGRO awarded with decommissioning contract
Date 17 October 2018
After a period of tendering, audits and meetings that started in December 2017, SAGRO has signed the contract for onshore decommissioning of the Tyra Redevelopment phase 4 jackets with offshore heavy lift and pipeline installation contractor Allseas.
The scope of work consists of the cleaning, demolition, recycling and disposal of 4 jackets with a combined weight of more than 10,000 tonnes and is part of Total E&P Denmark’s Tyra Redevelopment Project. Allseas’ heavy lift vessel “Pioneering Spirit” will lift and transport the structures from the Tyra field (Denmark) to SAGRO’s facilities at Flushing, the Netherlands.
The cleaning, demolition, recycling and disposal starts in 2021.
The contract is important for SAGRO’s decommissioning unit, and proves SAGRO’s competitiveness in this market.
SAGRO is building on its role as a qualitative partner in decommissioning offshore installations, with key facilities in Flushing. The port’s strategic location is combined with the ability to accommodate heavy-lift vessels and barges, which allows flexible operations for both heavy lift and piece small decommissioning operations.
The location is ideally positioned to meet the needs of the decommissioning industry for recycling and disposal of large structures. The facilities also handles piece small materials, decommissioned cargoes and subsea equipment.
SAGRO has the knowledge and experience in onshore decommissioning and excellent waste management to complement the decommissioning activities.
