The Golden Eagle Living Quarters [LQ] module designed and built by Sembmarine SLP in Lowestoft at its Hamilton Dock, successfully sailed away yesterday passing through the port pier heads at 12:05 BST.


 
The 2000 tonne module, which will provide living accommodation for 140 people, had been loaded onto sea-going barges earlier this month, as had the 550 tonne, 70 metre long bridge and a 220 tonne flare boom for the same project.


 
On Sunday 18th May, the Bridge & Flare modules set sail, also destined for the Nexen Petroleum operated Golden Eagle Field, where a Heavy Lift Vessel will position the modules onto the main deck structure, which is shortly due to be installed onto the Jacket. The Golden Eagle Field is located some 130 miles offshore north east of Aberdeen.


Managing Director Paul Thomson said: "This has been another successful project for Sembmarine SLP and UK manufacturing. The project has provided employment for over 380 local employees and many more at local subcontractors and suppliers over the past 29 months and thanks to their dedication and hard work SLP has once again delivered on schedule."
 


"The Living Quarters module will be fully integrated into the Golden Eagle topside platform so was built to meet exacting weight specifications, and designed to minimise offshore installation and hook up time. In order to comply with the most recent statutory requirements, the LQ also incorporates the latest safe-deck designed helideck and parking bay, which includes a Deck Integrated Fire Fighting System [DIFFS]."
Looking to the future, Paul Thomson went on to say:


 
"The Lowestoft yard will feel empty for a while but there is a lot of action behind the scenes. FEED and design work is ongoing, our Offshore Group continues to expand brown field opportunities and given the volume of work we are tendering in both the oil & gas and the offshore wind sectors, it will not be long before our workforce is fully immersed in several challenging new projects."
