Versabar VB 10,000 Makes a Clean Sweep of Three Topsides

Versabar's Claw was used in the Western Gulf to remove three decks. The first of three deck removals began early in the morning. The 1,608-ton topside was free and clear by 11:30AM. By 5:00PM the second deck, weighing 1,170 tons, was being revieved to the barge for transport. The removal of the third and final deck began early the next morning. The final topside weighed in at 1,756 tons, the largest of the three. In a total elapsed time of just 30 hours the VB 10,000 has successfully and safely recovered 4,534 tons of “idle iron” from the Gulf of Mexico. A remarkable feat made possible by dedicated personnel and a safe work ethic!
