    Seaway Heavy Lifting completes record lift

    Projects and Operations // August 7, 2015

    On 2 August Seaway Heavy Lifting's crane vessel Oleg Strashnov successfully installed the Process Unit (PU) topside for operator GDF SUEZ E&P UK Ltd and partners Centrica Energy and Bayerngas. In doing so, Oleg Strashnov set a new lift record for Seaway Heavy Lifting with the safe installation of the unit, which had a hook load of 4,700 tonnes.

    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.

    Last year the company's crane vessel Stanislav Yudin installed the Alpha Wellhead platform, Process Unit jacket, Quarters Unit jacket and subsea structures.

    This year the campaign continues with the installation of the Bravo Wellhead platform, Process Unit topside and compression module, Quarters Unit topside, and connecting bridges.
