2,700-ton Platform Decommissioning

Versabar's VB 10,000 lift system was used in the decommissioning of a 2,700-ton platform in the Gulf of Mexico. Once the legs were cut, the VB 10,000 lifted the deck from its jacket. With the platform suspended in the air, the VB 10,000 used its GPS thrusters to navigate away from the jacket, enabling a transport barge to maneuver into position underneath the structure. The platform was lowered and sea-fastened to the barge before departing.
