On a daily basis Wagenborg Nedlift carries out transports for various offshore operators in the North Sea to and from the supply basis in Den Helder. In the weekend of Easter this concerned a very special cargo: an entire helideck destined for the Total E&P Nederland-platform F15A.
Earlier, the helideck was transported by barge in 2 sections, measuring: 22 x 12 x 0.62m and weighing 16 and 14 tonnes, from the yard in Dintelmond to the port of Den Helder. The heli deck was stored until the moment for shipment to the platform. A 130 tonnes mobile crane was used for the transshipment by firstly placing the two sections on the quay and subsequently them onto the offshore supply vessel ‘Island Earl’. In the meanwhile, the heli deck is successfully installed on platform F15A with the Seafox 2 and the platform crane.
