VB 10,000 Removes Decommissioned Tripod Platform

Versabar's VB 10,000 is under tow carrying a 500-ton tripod jacket. This marked the first transport operation with a jacket suspended out of the water, demonstrating the benefit of the system's unique twin gantry configuration. The 250-ton topside was lifted from the jacket by the VB 10,000 a few weeks prior. A 200-ton conductor was also removed and towed through choppy waters by the same method. The VB 10,000's two barges are hydrodynamically decoupled, allowing them to move independently, providing the vessel with exceptional stability in scenarios such as this.
