Scaldis wins Wintershall contract

June 23 - Wintershall Noordzee bv has contracted Scaldis Marine Contractors nv for the installation of the L6-B platform in the Dutch sector of the North sea.

The location of the platform is situated 25 nautical miles northwest of Terschelling in the Netherlands, and the water depth on the development location is 35 m.

In a joint effort between Wintershall and Scaldis, a methodology has been developed with a prime focus on minimising the duration of the offshore activities, which will automatically lead to a reduction in risk and overall costs, says Scaldis.

The platform will be picked up from a quayside in Rotterdam using the heavy lift vessel Rambiz, which has a lifting capacity of 3,300 tonnes. Rigging will be connected via hydraulic shackles to the bottom part of the foundation, before it is lifted from the quayside and transported to the installation site.

Upon arrival on the site, Rambiz will moor in the correct position, and the platform will be lowered until the suction cans reach the seabed.

Scaldis has subcontracted Suction Pile Technology to execute the suction operations.
