VB 10,000 Removes Decommissioned Bridge-Linked Platforms

A decommissioned bridge-linked platform complex was removed from the Gulf by Versabar's VB 10,000. Using its DP-3 thrusters, the VB 10,000 floated over the platforms, retrieved the 30-ton adjoining bridge, and maneuvered away in order to lower the bridge onto a transport barge. After leg cuts were performed, the topsides (weighing 1200 tons and 600 tons) were each lifted off of their jackets and sea-fastened to a transport barge for removal. The entire removal operation was performed in just one day.
