The project FLARE TIP REPAIR
During the first days offshore, the team and the inspectors established the priority in the scope of work, while the crew installed all the equipment. The actual repair work at the top of the flare tower was completed during the following week. The team repaired many cracks on the flare tip itself and on the flare tip access platform. The flare tips are now fit for the coming years of operation and the flare tip access platform can be accessed safely again.
The FPSO Girassol is located offshore Angola and operated by Total E&P Angola. Ponticelli is one of the subcontractors for maintenance on the FPSO. During the offshore works, which took place during the shutdown, the team stayed on the accommodation vessel Lancelot (Intership)
