Richard van der Tuin, Project Manager, Ardent Global Maritime

Richard’s presentation will discuss a new and innovative solution for cost-effectively recovering jackets during oil and gas decommissioning, which was successfully deployed on the tragic Costa Concordia wreck.

The buoyancy barges have been used to lift, transport and offload a wreck for removal and has now been converted to work for offshore jackets.

The technology is currently under further development as part of a project co-funded by the Oil & Gas Technology Centre.
