The work was performed onboard the rig while it was berthed in Invergordon, northern Scotland. MSIS deployed a team of 10 personnel to clean a range of pontoon and deck tanks.

The company used specialist equipment to clean the rig’s ballast, base oil, potable water, and fuel tanks, and removed waste – via its fleet of vacuum tank vehicles – for subsequent disposed at its nearby licensed waste transfer station. The work took around three months to complete.
