InterMoor Delivers Buchan Alpha to Dales Voe for Dismantling

InterMoor, working closely with the Repsol Sinopec Resources UK and the Buchan Alpha project team, delivered the Buchan Alpha platform to Dales Voe in Shetland, where dismantling has started.

The work was undertaken on behalf of Repsol Sinopec with InterMoor acting as the marine contractor charged with the development of the decommissioning marine activities.

The campaign included the project management of all activities associated with the complex unmooring operation and carrying out a full tow analysis of a close-to 40-year old floating production unit.

The initial planning for the project started over 10 months ago with InterMoor’s marine team developing the documentation whilst liaising with Repsol Sinopec, MCA (Maritime Coastguard Agency) and BEIS (Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy) to ensure all facets of the project were delivered in accordance with the relevant guidelines and requirements.

All work was carried in accordance with the Repsol Sinopec health and safety guidelines, in additional to environmental laws and recognized international guidelines to ensure a safe, smooth and efficient operation, the company said.
