Sinbad asset removal – Q3 2021

In Q3 of 2021, Base’s long term business partner Fugro removed the Sinbad platform from the seabed and lifted it into a 100m dump barge with pre-installed grillage. Base Marine brought this barge to The Port of Ashburton. The Platform was cut into manageable components and progressively removed from the barge using a 700T crane and transferred to the Base laydown where it was processed and sent to a nearby waste management facility. The Project was a great success and provided the effectiveness of the Port of Ashburton for decommissioning projects and other port services to support offshore projects.
