500-ton Deck Retrieved by Versabar's Claw

A 500-ton deck was removed from the Gulf of Mexico by Versabar's VB 10,000 and Claw lift device. Two identical support cradles were lowered to the sea floor near the damaged topside. The Claw was then lowered by the VB 10,000 to retrieve the deck and place it on top of the two cradles, which together would serve as a base to carry the structure to the surface. Using the Claw on one gantry of the VB 10,000, and a lift bar rigging configuration on the other, both worked simultaneously to bring the entire lift package to the surface, where it was then lowered to a transport barge for removal.
