The Tyra West platform was transported from the Tyra field in the North Sea on the world’s largest construction vessel Pioneering Spirit, after which it arrived at Port of Frederikshavn on Saturday night on the barge Iron Lady. By means of hydraulic pressure, Tyra West is to be moved ashore from the barge on the new recycling yard at M.A.R.S. Europe. Here is also Tyra East, which arrived in Frederikshavn earlier this week. Tyra East and Tyra West are the two largest living quarters and processing platforms from the Tyra field of respectively 14,000 and 8,000 tons approximately.

The platforms have come to Frederikshavn precisely as they were – meaning that the interior is exactly as it was, when the last person disembarked it in the North Sea. From here, it is M.A.R.S.’s assignment to make sure that as much as possible of the platforms can be reused and recycled.
