The Dvalin project marks a new milestone as the 577-ton H25 module is prepared for transportation to the Heidrun platform in the Norwegian Sea.

The module has been moved 300 meters from the North Sea Hall to quay at the Aibel yard in Haugesund. The load out completes a nine-month long fabrication phase.

The DEA Dvalin Host Manager, Roy Padgett points out that the achievement should not be underestimated, as the schedule was a challenge.

“Statoil and Aibel have performed exceptionally well to achieve this milestone as per schedule with virtually zero carry-over work to offshore. The load out is a great moment for DEA and the Dvalin project as we now see Dvalin actually taking shape”, he says.

The load out went according to plan, and the module is now prepared for sail-out to Mekjarvik outside Stavanger. In Mekjarvik, the module will be lifted onto a Saipem heavy lift vessel. From there, Saipem will transport the module to the Heidrun platform for installation.
