Masterpiece in offshore lifting

The Wagenborg Foxdrill team recently completed a very special offshore lifting project: the dismantling of a complete derrick on an offshore platform about 50 kilometers off the coast of Congo.

 

A class of its own

Dutch-based Dixstone Shipyard Holland BV awarded the complex derrick-removal scope to Foxdrill because of the specific skills and experience on derrick removal operations of the Foxdrill team. Dixstone is operating as a turnkey contractor for the platform conversion scope.

 

In other words: a top-class derrick dismantling project, both in terms of the engineering and work preparation, as well as the techniques and rope access activities used. Bart Oude Ophuis, Operations Manager, and Sander Hilbrink, Project Manager, give an insight.
