The FPSO vessel the Curlew arrived into Dundee on 22 June where she will undergo cleaning and waste disposal in preparation for being fully decommissioned. The vessel is owned by Shell UK and the contractor is being undertaken by Augean North Sea Services located at the Port of Dundee.
Stuart Wallace, Chief Operating Officer at Forth Ports said: “We welcome the Shell Curlew into Dundee for the start of her decommissioning. This is a significant project for Augean and the port and clearly demonstrates the unrivalled capability of our infrastructure and the supply chain that we have developed in Dundee to take on these large-scale projects.
Augean’s on site class leading waste management facility, coupled with our new heavy lift quayside and marine capability, is an attractive offering to the North Sea oil & gas decommissioning sector. The proximity to the skills base in Dundee along with our available land space and quayside makes Dundee the port of choice for large scale decommissioning in Scotland.”
