What a sight! A giant heavy vessel lifts the topside of the Edvard Grieg installation onto the platform’s already installed steel jacket in the North Sea. The topside consists of a main deck module, a combined utility module and living quarters, a process module and a flare tower. The main deck with 10.000 tons was the first to be lifted into place. With this operation, Lundin Norway, operator of the Edvard Grieg field, expects production in the fourth quarter of 2015. Wintershall is a partner on the Lundin-operated field.2015-07-23T11:39:35+0200
