Venko Offshore awarded Conbit a contract for the offshore replacement of two diesel storage tanks on the Euro platform located in the Dutch sector of the North Sea. The tanks, nearly 35 years old, were starting to show signs of corrosion. The platform’s owner, RWS (Rijkswaterstaat) decided that the tanks needed to be replaced and assigned this project to Venko.
Conbit was given the lifting part of the project because of our below-deck lifting know-how and extensive experience in offshore operations.
Each tank weighs approximately two tonnes, is 1.6 m in diameter and is 4 m long. The tanks are suspended under the Euro platform by means of two top-mounted brackets.
