Blyth completes biggest decommissioning project to date

Working alongside Maersk Decom, Maersk Supply Service and Perenco’s Thames field in the UK North Sea, a number of sizeable wellheads and wellhead protection structures have been delivered to Blyth.

 

Dismantling and downsizing of the recovered structures took place at the port’s dedicated facility at its Battleship Wharf terminal and follows on from several smaller projects and the recent removal and decommissioning of two 2-megawatt turbines owned by EON.

 

Located off Blyth in Britain’s north sector of the North Sea, the turbines were the UK’s first offshore wind farm and had reached the end of their technical lifespan. They were the first offshore turbines in UK waters to be decommissioned earlier this year.

 

Martin Lawlor, Chief Executive of Port of Blyth, said: “This project was successfully completed alongside major partners in Maersk Decom and Maersk Supply Service. It further proves the viability of our fully licenced decom facility and thanks to our enviable mid-North Sea location gives us an opportunity to position ourselves as a major player as decommissioning in the sector ramps up over the coming months and years.”

 

Home to some of the world largest offshore and renewable energy firms, Port of Blyth is regarded as one of the UK’s leading offshore energy support bases. The designated 2.3-ha decom site is licenced to handle up to 50,000 tonnes of offshore energy materials per year, with the port likely to focus on small to medium sized projects and pieces up to 4000 tonnes in response to demand.
