An old offshore drilling and oil platform is being decommissioned at a base where I live and a Weldex Terex CC3800 has been hired in to help with the lifts.

I've been told that it has 100m of boom, either way it's very impressive and there's a rumour that she may be bought and kept here after this project.

Thanks, the maximum wind speed for working her is 9m/s so it seems to be a case of grabbing any weather windows that come.

And that's not many at this time of year!.

I also like the Weldex livery.

Thanks for sharing Paul.

Just a small update on the decommissioning of this old drilling/oil rig.

I managed to catch them removing the final flare stack last Saturday.

Nice catch! Looks like she’ll be there a while longer yet.

Yeh, it's an eighteen month project but they're making good progress and there's possibly another one after this which is twice the size!.
