The Bearing
Blocks Campaign

Installation of lifting points on the Tyra West platform - the second phase of the Bearing Blocks Campaign is initiated.

The Tyra East and Tyra West platform facilities are suffering from seabed subsidence. New topsides facilities will, therefore, be installed at higher elevations in order to continue production.

The second phase of SubC's work includes the removal of obsoleted facilities above water (topsides), with fabrication and installation of the remaining 4 bearing blocks on TWA. These lifting points are installed at the leg and will be used for the topsides single-lift removal by Allseas’ heavy lift vessel Pioneering Spirit.

For the fabrication and installation phase, a total of +10.000 hours has been executed:
- without any recordable incidents
- without any spills
- and without any HIPO’s

Prior to the fabrication and installation phase, SubC was responsible for the preparation, including project management and engineering.

The second phase of the project will be finished this summer.

The first phase of the project has been performed in 2019 and was finalized two weeks prior to the planned schedule due to effective cooperation. This phase included 16 bearing blocks on TEA and 4 bearing blocks on TWA.
