ESBJERG, Denmark– Total has awarded Semco Maritime an EPCI contract for the Tyra redevelopment project in the Danish North Sea.
The work scope includes preparatory engineering work followed by system installation on five unmanned satellite platforms at the Tyra complex. Initial planning work has begun, and the entire project – involving about 25 employees – must be completed by October.
The Tyra Complex consists of two central processing platforms, Tyra East and Tyra West, and five unmanned satellite production platforms. While the processing platforms are to be completely redeveloped, the five satellite platforms are put into idle mode during the redevelopment phase.
The satellites must be able to perform minor operations and allow for maintenance, inspection, and preservation of equipment. Semco Maritime’s scope of work also includes installation of temporary diesel generators on several satellites, and isolation of process systems in order to provide a safe working environment at Tyra East and Tyra West.
