Rohde Nielsen A/S recently completed the route preparation works on the Tolmount Development Project for Saipem LTD.
During the works, which started in early spring, the company cleared over 3.000 boulders from the pipeline route.
Rohde Nielsen also dredged and backfilled a 5km nearshore trench and 50.000 m3 of clay material have been pre-sweep dredged at offshore locations.
The company’s vessels MPV Heimdal R and the BHD Mjølner R supported by a dedicated survey team conducted the work. Rohde Nielsen’s RimfaxeR and SkinfaxeR provided valuable assistance as well.
Before pipe pull by Saipem LTD, Rohde Nielsen provided the platform for the pull-wire lay and assisted during the operation. This was a demanding task in an exposed location on the UK east coast.
The company managed to deliver everything within the expected timeframe despite the challenges imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
