VB 10,000 Completes First Full Season of Work

In its first full season of work, the VB 10,000 completed 40 lift operations of widely differing scope and nature. Ten toppled decks and two toppled jackets were retrieved from the sea floor. Three standing decks and three standing jackets were removed as well. Two of the jackets were also towed and reefed, a procedure first performed by the VB 10,000's predecessor, the Bottom Feeder. In September, the VB 10,000 removed five sunken platforms in a four-day span utilizing the new Claw lift device. After a successful season in 2011, the VB 10,000 is currently undergoing routine maintenance and upgrades in preparation for the 2012 lift season.
