Platform Decommissioned by Versabar's Claw

Versabar's Claw was used to decommission a 900-ton standing platform. While the Claw has already been used in a number of salvage lifts, this is the first time the device was used in an above-water decommissioning operation. Once the VB 10,000 floated over the platform, the Claw assemblies (operated by winches) were positioned to grasp the platform. With the tines carefully secured in the structure, the VB 10,000 lifted the deck, used its GPS thrusters to float away from the jacket, and then deposited the load on a transport barge.
