Veolia-Peterson joint venture (JV) has secured a subcontract from Allseas, an offshore heavy-lift and pipelay contractor, to provide dismantling and disposal services for a decommissioning project in the northern part of the North Sea.

Veolia-Peterson JV, which was formed by Veolia ES UK and Peterson UK, will be responsible for the dismantling and disposal of the steel platform’s integrated accommodation besides drilling and production topsides.

Allseas senior project manager Evert van Herel said: “We look forward to working with Veolia-Peterson on this project. Their facility at Dales Voe is perfectly located and the site’s ability to handle large and complex loads to fully break down and decommission the structure is a great offering to simplify the process for us as a client.”

“The contract to engineer, prepare, remove and dispose (EPRD) to the platform was awarded to Allseas whereas Veolia-Peterson partnership was appointed to finish the platform’s onshore disposal.”

Allseas will remove and deliver all topsides in a single lift weighing about 12,600t. The operations are expected are start at Veolia-Peterson’s Dales Voe site in Shetland in 2020. Preparation works at the location are planned to commence in 2019.

The contract to engineer, prepare, remove and dispose (EPRD) to the platform was awarded to Allseas whereas Veolia-Peterson partnership was appointed to finish the platform’s onshore disposal.

Peterson decommissioning manager James Johnson said: “We have been in discussion with Allseas on Single Lift since concept stage and it’s fantastic to see this work coming to fruition with this prestigious contract award, and hopefully the first of many Single Lifts for Veolia-Peterson at our new Dales Voe facility.”
