Pioneering Spirit Pioneering Spirit

Equinor Energy, on behalf of the Stratfjord A Unit, has awarded Allseas Group a contract for the removal, transfer, load-in to shore, and disposal of the 48,000-tonne Strafjord A platform topsides.

Allseas’ heavy lift and pipelay vessel Pioneering Spirit will remove the topsides from its concrete gravity-based substructure in one piece after 2022.

One of the largest platforms in the Norwegian continental shelf, Stratfjord A stand in 149 metres of water in the centre of the Stratfjord field, located in the northern North Sea, approximately 190 kilometres west of Bergen. The 84- by 54-metre topsides has a weight equal to Pioneering Spirit’s single-lift capacity.
