Brent Spar Dismantled - Stavanger, Norway
The challenge to the customer
In one of Norway’s many fjords, sits the famous Brent Spar. A
floating structure, originally anchored in the North Sea, it was
made largely of concrete and steel and served as a crude oil
storage tank and loading buoy. After years of discussion,
controversy and finally a decision, the Brent Spar was towed and
dismantled in Norway with large parts of it used to build a
roll-on, roll-off ferry quay structure.
At the start of the project, two 150kW generators were installed
for the preparation period, and later three 400kW generators were
provided during the 18-week dismantling period.
The benefits to the customer
Aggreko was actively involved in all phases of the life cycle of
the platforms, from construction to eventual dismantling, providing
a turnkey solution and continual support to the customer.
