The Rough 47/8 Alpha facilities consist of the Alpha Production (AP) Platform, the Alpha Drilling (AD) Platform and a connecting Bridge.
Rough 47/8 Alpha is located approx. 29 km offshore Easington, United Kingdom in water depths of approximately 38 m LAT. Power to the platforms is taken from a subsea umbilical from Rough B to the AP platform and via bridge link to AD. Both platforms will be completely removed, and the jacket piles will be cut at 3m under seabed.
Ardent have been tasked to develop a solution for the removal of Rough AD & AP Platforms (including bridge link, topsides & jackets) using an HLV to lift the modules and transfer to a nominated decommissioning yard.
