Aggreko assists with the dismantling of the Brent Spar

Brent Spar Case Study

Brent Spar Dismantled - Stavanger, Norway

 

The challenge to the customer

In one of Norway’s many fjords, sits the famous Brent Spar. A floating structure, originally anchored in the North Sea, it was made largely of concrete and steel and served as a crude oil storage tank and loading buoy. After years of discussion, controversy and finally a decision, the Brent Spar was towed and dismantled in Norway with large parts of it used to build a roll-on, roll-off ferry quay structure.

Aggreko's solution

At the start of the project, two 150kW generators were installed for the preparation period, and later three 400kW generators were provided during the 18-week dismantling period.

The benefits to the customer

Aggreko was actively involved in all phases of the life cycle of the platforms, from construction to eventual dismantling, providing a turnkey solution and continual support to the customer.
