    Bisso Marine installs the topside.

    Bisso Marine in the US has completed a tandem block lift of an offshore production topside. The company used the Lili Bisso to set a 315 tonne topside deck during the installation of a new offshore structure in the Gulf of Mexico.

    Bisso Marine's Boaz provided support on the project, which also involved the installation of a lean-to well protector on the existing caisson.

    “Performing a tandem block lift offshore always presents challenges, but our expert offshore team and multipurpose derrick barges performed the job safely and on budget for the customer,” said Ron McInnis, vice president of construction and heavy lift operations at Bisso Marine.
