Published on December 22 2021
Leask Marine have recently completed a major offshore decommissioning project in France on behalf of Hydroquest, to remove their 1MW turbine from their test site off Paimpol-Bréhat in Brittany.
The project entailed project management, engineering, and marine operations with the engagement of the North Sea Atlantic vessel.
In association with Tadek Ltd, the decommissioning & recovery procedures were developed with all appropriate HAZOP, Risk assessments, and Emergency Response plans.
The turbine lift, together with the foundation & ballast lifts were managed on site by Leask marine personnel, with a total of 1500tons of hardware recovered to surface and offloaded to quayside.
The whole project was successfully delivered in a very tight operational weather window.
