Location: North Sea, Southern Sector

Client: Shell

Scope: To slide compressor and align with turbine

The first compressor installation was carried offshore in the southern North Sea. This allowed the platform to remain active without being decommissioned to the dry dock for the refit.

5 No compressors were installed by pulling the unit along the platform laterally, lifting the compressor vertically using a synchronised system and pushing the compressor towards the turbine.

The compressor was then aligned with the turbine within a tolerance of 0.5mm using the synchronised system
