Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) have announced an additional contract award with Maersk Oil’s Tyra Redevelopment Project.

The contract is for offshore lifting services in the Tyra East and West complexes related to the replacement of the wellhead and riser platform topsides.

The work will involve the removal, transportation and disposal of topsides, bridges and a jacket with a combined weight of around 17,000 mT.

This new contract award follows the earlier transportation and installation contract for the processing and accommodation platform won by HMC earlier this year.

Work is due to begin on the offshore contract work in 2020.

Harke Jan Meek, chief commercial officer for HMC, said: “The scope of work under this Contract represents a critical phase of the Maersk Oil Tyra Redevelopment project and involves a number of delicate offshore lift operations. We appreciate the trust Maersk Oil has once again placed in HMC by awarding this work to us.”
