REFURBISHMENT OF A MID-SEVENTIES PLATFORM DECK STRUCTURE

The authors describe the erection of structural steelwork and the welding techniques used in the refurbishment of the Bravo platform in the North Sea. Originally constructed in the 1970s, the upgrade to the rig was necessary due to changes in the reservoir conditions, and the opportunity was taken to replace the living quarters and process modules which require significant deck strengthening owing to the redistribution of the topsides loading.
