July 21 - The top deck for the Hejre platform has been installed at the DSME yard in Okpo, South Korea.

The 503-tonne top deck, which was the last deck to be installed on the Hejre oil platform topside, was lifted to a height of 50 m and positioned into place using two large crawler cranes in a tandem lift.

Dong Energy director Christian Eilersen explained that, with the top deck in position, all major structural work on the Hejre platform is complete.

In the coming months, around 50 tonnes of process equipment, piping, spools and cable pulling will be installed on the topside before it is ready to be transported to the North Sea in 2016. The topside will weigh around 17,500 tonnes when complete.
