New Offshore Decommissioning Project for Heerema Marine Contractors
Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) in a consortium with AF Gruppen (AFG) have received notice that Fairfield Betula Limited intends to enter into a contract for the removal and disposal of the Dunlin Alpha topside in the UK continental shelf.
The contract includes Engineering, Preparation, Removal & Disposal (EPRD) of the Dunlin Alpha topside with a total tonnage of approx. 20,000 tonnes. The platform is to be removed and disposed in the period between 2021 – 2024.
Heerema Marine Contractors will provide its crane vessels with clean energy. By switching off the diesel generators, total emissions will be reduced by the equivalent of the annual emissions of approximately 5,000 diesel cars. Eneco will supply power from the wind farm on Landtong Rozenburg. Heerema's crane vessels are often moored in the Calandkanaal in Rotterdam. The use of clean energy reduces noise and air pollution, significantly reduces CO2 emissions and improves the quality of life in Rozenburg and Maassluis.
