Subsea manifold removal project, UK
ALE has successfully loaded-in three redundant subsea manifolds for reclaiming in the Shetland Islands, UK.
The subsea manifold units weighed 360t, 437t and 547t. ALE utilised different configurations of SPMTs to load-in the manifold units.
ALE needed to turn two of the units 90º on the barge prior to load-in. As quay strength was a concern, ALE supplied additional quayside matting.
All three structures were successfully loaded-in over two days.
