The top deck was the last deck to be installed on the Hejre oil platform topside. Using two large crawler cranes, the procedure involved a tandem lift of the 503-tonne top deck, and a set-down point approx. 50 metres above ground level.
Director in DONG Energy, Christian Eilersen said:
“This is a very proud moment for all of us in the Korea team. With the top deck in position, we have completed the major structural work on the Hejre platform with a strong commitment to quality and to safety”.
“We will be working closely with the contractors DSME and Technip in order to maintain this focus moving forward”.
In the coming months, all the process equipment, piping, spools and cable pulling will be installed on the topside. At the moment, some 650 workers are working on the topside every day to ensure completion of the installations by spring 2016.
