The platform arrived safely in Klosterfjorden in August, where a handover to Kværner was achieved.
The 346 nautical-mile journey was carried out on behalf of the operator following the towing of the oil storage and offloading vessel Njord B by Global Maritime to Sterkoder, Kristiansund earlier this summer.
The company was responsible for the project management, engineering, design, fabrication, and procurement of equipment, as well as all offshore management activities for the Njord A and Njord B mooring disconnection and tow.
Its responsibilities included the disconnection of 12 mooring lines, the recovery of one complete mooring line (excluding the suction anchor) for onshore inspection and the towing-in of the Njord A platform to Klosterfjorden outside the Stord yard. Statoil coordinated the decommissioning activities including the disconnection of risers and the temporary plugging of wells.
Global Maritime worked closely with Statoil`s Njord Future Marine Project and Operations Vessel and Rigmove that provided the vessels and rig positioning services for the offshore operations.
