1,800-ton Topside Decommissioning

Versabar's VB 10,000 lift system was used in the decommissioning of an 1,800-ton four-pile production topside. The VB 10,000 floated over the topside and hooked up on four points. After welders made final cuts, the deck was lifted from its jacket. The VB 10,000 maneuvered away from the jacket using the system's newly commissioned GPS thrusters. A transport barge was then put into position and the deck was lowered and sea-fastened to the barge before it departed for a Gulf Coast salvage facility.
