After a major construction phase, the 3,500 tonne Dvalin module has been lifted safely aboard the Heidrun platform in the Norwegian Sea. The three-hour operation on 3 August ranks among the heaviest lifts onto an existing platform in the history of the Norwegian Continental Shelf. The Wintershall Dea operated Dvalin field is a subsea gas development tied back to Heidrun, 15 kilometres to the northwest in the Norwegian Sea. In the case of Dvalin, some 700 yard workers have spent two and a half years building a dedicated gas treatment module.

The Dvalin module was built at the Aibel yard in Haugesund on behalf of Equinor, which is the operator of the Heidrun platform. Wintershall Dea has worked closely with both companies to ensure smooth delivery of the unit.

The lifting operation was carried out by the heavy lifting vessel Saipem 7000. The Dvalin module was lifted from the barge onto the Heidrun platform over the course of three hours.

Witnessing the heavy lift from aboard the Saipem 7000, Anita Albriktsen, Topsides Host Manager, said: "For those of us who have followed the construction of the module, from the first steel cut, through the pulling of 100,000 metres of cable and welding of 3,700 joints, to seeing it now on Heidrun, it was a great experience to see the module being lifted in place."
