‘Pioneering Spirit’ successfully installs test platform
Tuesday, 16 August 2016 16:58

Allseas’ ‘Pioneering Spirit’ has successfully installed a test platform as it continues sea trials.

The dynamically positioned single-lift installation/decommissioning and pipelay vessel installed the 5,500-tonne test platform topsides on a substructure in the K-13 field in the North Sea.

The ‘Spirit’ will next perform 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.
