Cygnus PU Platform in place. Record lift for 'Oleg Strashnov'

Seaway Heavy Lifting, using its vessel Oleg Strashnov, on Sunday, August 2, installed the Process Unit (PU) topside for operator GDF SUEZ E&P UK Ltd in the UK section of the North Sea.

According to the company, the Oleg Strashnov set a new lift record for Seaway Heavy Lifting with the safe installation of the PU topside with a hook load of 4700Mt.

The PU topside is part of the Cygnus field which consists of four platforms: Alpha Wellhead platform, Process Unit platform, Quarters Unit platform and the Bravo Wellhead platform.

The Cygnus field is located in the southern part of the North Sea.

Seaway Heavy Lifting’s COO, Peter de Bree says: “I am very proud of the vessel and her crew in successfully performing this record lift and would like to thank GDF SUEZ for their confidence in Seaway Heavy Lifting’s on- and offshore organization when awarding this Contract in 2012. In addition I would like to thank everyone involved within Seaway Heavy Lifting, both on- and offshore in achieving this milestone.”
