August 10 - Allseas' installation and decommissioning vessel Pioneering Spirit has successfully installed the 5,500-tonne test platform topside on its substructure at the K-13 field in the North Sea.

In the coming days, Pioneering Spirit will perform dynamic positioning (DP) trials, followed by a series of installation and removal trials with the test platform topsides under varying weather conditions.

After the successful completion of the offshore trials, the vessel will sail to Norway to remove the 13,500-tonne Yme platform for Repsol.
