The topsides and bridges sailed away from Sembmarine’s Admiratly yard in Singapore on Sunday headed for the Tyra Field in the Danish North Sea to replace ageing facilities.
The Singapore yard group highlighted the successful completion of the project despite the challenges presented by Covd-19 including supply chain disruptions and manpower shortages. Earlier in the month Sembmarine revealed the majority of projects at its yards had been delayed by at least 12 months following the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Sembcorp Marine Head of Offshore Platforms, Samuel Wong, said, “Amid the multitude of challenges brought on by Covid-19, Sembcorp Marine is proud to have completed the structures safely for our customer. The topsides are delivered building on our extensive track record in constructing topside modules and other facilities for the offshore, marine and energy industries.”
Vice President, Head of the Tyra Redevelopment TotalEnergies EP Denmark, Morten Hesselager Pedersen, said, “Today we celebrate the sailaway of the first new Tyra topsides towards the Danish North Sea. The sailaway is a result of the good collaboration between Sembcorp Marine, and our site team at the yard in Singapore.
In December 2019, Sembcorp Marine secured the subcontract to construct six topside modules and four bridges from TotalEnergies EP Denmark and the remaining projects are due to be delivered in January 2022.
