Sembcorp Marine Ltd has safely completed the fabrication of two wellhead topsides, one riser topside and two bridges for deployment to TotalEnergies’ redeveloped Tyra Field located in the Danish North Sea.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused unprecedented challenges to the completion of the modules and bridges. In spite of significant supply chain disruptions and acute manpower shortages, the Group demonstrated its resilience in overcoming the challenges through operational flexibility, close collaboration with its customer, and leveraging its global supply chain and logistics capabilities, to deliver the modules and bridges. This was achieved without compromise to safety and quality.
The topsides and bridges sailed away from Sembcorp Marine Admiralty Yard today. They will replace Tyra’s ageing facilities to support TotalEnergies’ vision and pursuit of sustainable operations.
The redeveloped Tyra is envisioned to be a high-tech production and natural gas export centre over the next 25 years. It is designed to reduce the environmental footprint and optimise the energy efficiency of its operations.
Sembcorp Marine Head of Offshore Platforms, Mr Samuel Wong, said, “Amid the multitude of challenges brought on by COVID-19, Sembcorp Marine is proud to have completed the structures safely for our customer. The topsides are delivered building on our extensive track record in constructing topside modules and other facilities for the offshore, marine and energy industries.”
Vice President, Head of the Tyra Redevelopment TotalEnergies EP Denmark, Mr Morten Hesselager Pedersen, said, “Today we celebrate the sailaway of the first new Tyra topsides towards the Danish North Sea. The sailaway is a result of the good collaboration between Sembcorp Marine, and our site team at the yard in Singapore. The Tyra Redevelopment project reaches a key milestone as the topsides are installed later this summer, and we will see the physical contours of Tyra II, which will be the new high tech hub for Danish natural gas and reduce CO2 emissions by 30%.”
In December 2019, Sembcorp Marine secured the subcontract to construct six topside modules and four bridges for the TotalEnergies EP Denmark’s Tyra Redevelopment Project. The remaining topside modules and bridges are projected to be delivered in January 2022.
