SPT offshore, acting as a subcontractor of Scaldis Marine Contractors, successfully installed the 3 suction piles forming the foundation of SPT’s tripod substructure and minimum facilities concept utilized for the Wintershall L6-B field development.
The suction piles were simultaneously installed in a record time of 3 hours. Similarly, the verticality achieved was 0.01 degree out of vertical, which is near perfect.
Scaldis Heavy Lift Vessel Rambiz transported and installed the tripod and minimal facilities topsides as one piece (which is a novelty in itself) in a record time of only 3 days including sailing to the field, installation and demob to port.
