MARINE SALVAGE: CASE STUDY
Ardent: Cutting Up Troll Solution
Images, starting top left and proceeding clockwise:
Ardent completed removing the
Troll Solution jack-up in November, 2016. Ardent deployed assets from several countries, including the crane barge Conquest MB-1, and a 1,000-ton hydraulic wreck grab from the Netherlands. Further sup- port vessels were deployed from the
U.S. and Mexico.
A computer generated image il- lustrates how Ardent planned to dismantle and dispose of the Troll
Solution next to the active CAAN-A wellhead platform.
A survey print-out shows removed sections of the Troll Solution jack- up as the wreck removal case was ongoing.
