VB 10,000 Lifts Decommissioned Topside from Spar

Versabar's VB 10,000 heavy lift vessel removed a 3,850-ton decommissioned deepwater topside from a spar. This was the first time such an operation was performed in the Gulf of Mexico. Unlike a jacket, a spar is a floating object itself, thus a delicate ballasting process was required in order to keep the spar from rising as the VB 10,000 lifted the topside. Including the weight of the rigging, the lift registered a total of 4,800 tons, making this one of the VB 10,000's heaviest lifts to date.
