VB 10,000 Retrieves 1,700-ton Platform & Jacket Section

Versabar's VB 10,000 lift system retrieved a 1,700-ton platform from the Gulf and rotated it 90 degrees before placing it on a transport barge for removal. The platform's size presented variables for Versabar engineers to work around, as it was too tall and too wide to be lifted and placed on a barge in an upright fashion. For the most secure lift, it was determined that the platform should be rotated and placed on its side. Custom barge grillage was fabricated to help support the platform during transport, as it extended beyond the edges of the barge.
