An offshore survey and FEED study were carried out on the BG Armada platform. The FEED study write up was then reviewed and approved by the client.
The 3D graphic cabin layout drawings were shown offshore to the BG Armada platform welfare committee and others, and positive feedback was received. The agreed output was to go ahead with the proposed cabin layout presented for review.
The Aiken Group project team thereafter completed all design, engineering, draughting and procurement activities for the different multi-discipline scopes of work.
The offshore accommodation upgrade work, consisted of destruct, outfitting, commissioning and final acceptance and hand over to Client.
This project was a single sourced fast track project, which consisted of H60 rated custom built accommodation modules, link corridors and structural grillage, which were shipped offshore within a four month period.
Four of the four person H60 rated Stainless Steel accommodation modules were internally sea fastened and the modules, link corridors and grillage were later sea fasted onto a supply boat prior to sail away.
Once offshore, Aiken Group completed all tie-in work scope between the new accommodation modules and the permanent living quarters on the platform.
This A60 rated Variable Speed Drive (VSD) module was designed, engineered and managed by Aiken Group throughout all stages of manufacture, load testing, shot blasting and painting. It was then delivered from the fabricator to Clipper Quay in Aberdeen for outfitting, pre-commissioning and commissioning activities. Throughout all phases of the manufacturing and outfitting work scope, weight control was tightly monitored and daily updated.
Prior to shipment offshore, the VSD module’s external HVAC ducting and structural attachments were removed, to ensure that the Forties Charlie platform pedestal crane maximum lifting capacity was not exceeded.
