Allseas completes topsides removal scope for Total’s Tyra redevelopment

Allseas’ heavy lift vessel Pioneering Spirit  has completed a successful processing and accommodation topsides and flare jackets removal campaign as part of the Tyra Redevelopment Project for Total E&P Denmark.

Over the last two weeks, Pioneering Spirit  removed more than 27,000 tonnes of platform facilities from the North Sea’s Tyra gas field, transporting the structures to specialist yards in Denmark and the Netherlands for recycling.

The final two structures, flare jackets, will be transferred from Pioneering Spirit  to a cargo barge for load-in to the Sagro yard in Vlissingen, the Netherlands. The two processing and accommodation topsides and connected facilities were delivered in two earlier trips to the M.A.R.S. recycling yard in Frederikshavn, Denmark.

Structures were removed one-by-one in a time-critical sequence of lifts that required Pioneering Spirit  to cover hundreds of miles between Denmark, the North Sea and the Netherlands during the two-week execution window.
