Heerema completes module installation work on Woodside’s Pluto Alpha platform

Heerema Marine Contractor’s heavy lift vessel Aegir has transported and installed the 1,650-tonne water handling module for client TechnipFMC on the Woodside-operated Pluto Alpha platform.

Aegir picked up the module from the MMHE yard in Johor, Malaysia, on November 14. From here, the vessel safely transported the module to the Woodside-operated Pluto field and completed the installation within four hours.

The Pluto field is located in 85 metres of water 190 kilometres northwest of Karratha, Western Australia.

The Pluto A platform is a not-normally manned platform, and the newly-installed water handling module consists of facilities for water separation and treatment, together with upgraded power generation units.

Aegir will then proceed to Singapore to receive upgrades in preparation for projects scheduled for 2021.
